The Hive

Community Hope Project

The Project

The Community Hope Project is a partnership between the school and the community to create a student-led business which will enable students to gain & practice essential 21st-century skills, as well as provide oppurtunities for social interaction (possible employment) for adults with disabilities. The student-led business, The Hive,  is a coffee shop which will sell various blends of coffees and tasty treats! 

Engaging the Students

The integration of a student-led business into the educational environment of our high school will not only benefit the community with the development of a new business, but also in the form of student benefit such as: relevant experience in work-force readiness skills. Numerous teachers and departments are exploring ways to incorporate the exciting venture into their curriculums: the Graphic Design class has already created and designed logos, mugs, menus, and flyers; the carpentry class has aided in the remodeling and repair of the structure; the Entrepreneurship class manufactured the numerous “Founding Member” mugs;  and the Interior Design class designed the interior of the business.

 

The Culinary class will create and prepare various assorted pastries and cookies which will be sold. As well as the Horticulture class contributing fresh vegetables, spring time blooms, and much more which will also be purchased from “The Hive”.  Finally, the Special Education class will help provide the manpower to serve the product. Students will gain managerial training that will help them with this business as well as grow their leadership potential, enriching every venture they undertake.

 

Adults With Disabilities

As the Community Hope Project becomes an established business, it is our vision to expand our partnership with the community and include adults with disabilities.
