During this term, Year 12 Certificate III in Business students are participating in the $20 Boss Program. Enterprise skills are crucial for preparing students for the future of work.
$20 Boss is an immersive learning program for building the enterprise skills of young people that has been developed by the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) and is backed by The Commonwealth Bank of Australia Start Smart Program and Financial Literacy Australia.
The program gives students $20 start-up capital to create, launch and operate their own venture over the course of a school term. Students will learn key elements of entrepreneurship and are taught how to make money and create social good. $20 Boss is aligned with the National Curriculum across English, Economics, Business and Mathematics.
Our Certificate III in Business students have elected to establish their 'ChipAndDip' business. Each Friday at lunch time throughout Term 3, students prepare, cook and sell hot, oven baked chips. At the conclusion of the program, students are asked to repay the original $20 of start-up capital, plus an additional $1 'Legacy Donation' back to keep the program sustainable and serving as many young Australians as possible. All profits will be donated to WHSC in a way that benefits the social good of our community.
