Business Entrepreneurship Apprenticeship Program Launches at Metro for girls
Business Apprenticeship Program sponsored by PwC
Teacher: Erin Kelly
Assistant Teacher: Monica McCormack
12 Students, 3 Business Teams
TEAM 1: "M.A.C. Snacks"
Sold healthy desserts to students after lunch. The product they chose after doing market research was a frozen fruit bar in various flavors.
TEAM 2: "Plumas"
Sold handmade hair bows, headbands, and feather extensions.
TEAM 3: "Forever Metro"
Designed a new tee-shirt for metro, incorporating symbols of the original logo. The T-shirts read: Love Metro, with the symbols below. They were sold in three colors: Purple, Blue, & Black, with hot pink letters.
Forever Metro made the most profit, but all three companies were very close in numbers.
The girls attended the follow career exploration excursions:
- GE Hispanic Forum
- Sage Products
- Vera Bradley Factory
