Key Activities & Deliverables
School-based enterprises are ongoing, student-managed, entrepreneurial operations within the school setting.
They provide goods or services that meet the needs of the school’s target markets (i.e., students, teachers, administrators, parents/guardians, community members, community organizations/businesses).
School-based enterprises replicate the workplace to provide career insights and relevant experiences for the student.
