Acton Business Company (abc) is an exciting program underway in the Acton community!
The Business Plan
In a classroom environment that is engaging and relationship based, students in Grade 10 Business are taught valuable skills to critically think through the design and implementation of a detailed business plan; a business based on their skills and interests, and that would benefit the Acton Community.
Committed and enthusiastic Mentors from the local business community are part of the classroom experience, sharing their knowledge, experience, and encouragement with students. After “pitching” their business plans to a panel of guest judges, the plans with the most potential are selected for Small Business Grants to turn the plan into a real summer business. Find out more About abc and the Benefits of abc.
The Real Business Experience
Selected students continue working with Mentors to implement their businesses over the summer. Meet abc to find out more about our Students, our Mentors, and the Community Partners that make abc work!
