KRA has enrolled 20 Granby High School students from its Portsmouth YES (Youth Employability and Success) program in the Junior Achievement Entrepreneurial Program, which runs from February 1 through May 10, 2011. To learn about the pros and cons of business ownership and management, the students will be hands-on in creating business plans and mission and vision statements, conducting consumer surveys, and researching product lines. As part of the start-up process, students chose a name… United Leaders Foundation…for their enterprise, sold 75 stock certificates for $2.00 each to generate revenue, and selected company officers, including a President and five Vice Presidents for critical business functions…Human Resources, Marketing, Public Relations, Production, and Finance. Other students will assume roles as non-officer employees to assist in operating the business. So far the research stage has yielded headphones/earphones, hats, t-shirts, and backpacks as potential products to sell, with the cooperation of the school store. Future articles will provide updates on the students’ progress with their entrepreneurial venture.
