Daleville, Ala. (June 7, 2017) — Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union (AACFCU) partnered with three local Boys and Girls Clubs to provide a Bee the Boss Program. This program teaches elementary and middle school students’ business principles and how they can be their own boss. Students at Boys and Girls Clubs in Dothan, Ozark and Troy were given a preset amount of money or a “loan” from the Credit Union to purchase Boys and Girls Club logo items they could sell to make money. They learned how to write a business plan, complete a loan application and how interest is calculated, prepare a budget and marketing plan and then were allowed to sell their product. At the end of the program, students were allowed to use the profits they made for either a group party, a donation to another non-profit or give the proceeds back to their Boys and Girls Club. Students chose to donate more than $900 back to their Boys and Girls Clubs, as well as to Dale County Relay for Life and Women’s Life Center in Troy, Ala.“We’re excited about this new program that provided a hands-on learning experience for the students,” said Lisa Hales, AACFCU vice president of marketing.
