One Hen Academy

Students in this apprenticeship form business teams, develop products, market their businesses, sell their products, calculate their business costs, revenue, and profit, and donate a percentage of their business profits to a charity of their choice. Through these activities, students learn how they can earn and use money to help those in need in their communities and around the world. This apprenticeship is based on One Hen Academy from One Hen, Inc. -- an enrichment program which evolved from the award-winning children’s book One Hen: How One Small Loan Made a Big Difference by Katie Smith Milway. One Hen Academy students are empowered as financially literate and socially consciousness global citizens, equipped to lead professional productive lives and inspired to help people in need.
