In conjunction with the Computer and Business Applications courses, students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will learn the financial aspects of running a business, social marketing impacts, and the everyday operational skills needed to becoming an entrepreneur.
We will work with the students on improving their "soft skills" to enhance a positive atmosphere in the store. Our expectation is to have teenagers that are immediately employable for their first job normally starting in high school.
Students will be using technology that can be found at local businesses throughout Emmaus and the country. Apple iPads using the popular Square application will assist in processing orders, tracking inventory, creating mailing lists, and allowing to accept noncash payments for the sales. All of these skills should improve their chances for obtaining their first job.
