Team: C’est La Vie
Location: Junior Achievement of Georgia- Atlanta District
Obstacles Turned into Growth and Success: An obstacle that challenged the students was the consistent attendance of all team members and overall team participation. The students quickly learned to overcome this by increasing inclusions, organizing structured meetings and establishing sales goals. Innovative
Products: Handmade wallets, hair bows, bracelets and change purses all innovatively made using Duct tape. These products come in multiple designs and colors.
Getting to Know the Teams: The students had an immediate desire not long after establishing their product to give back to the community. A number of Fellows within the group have traveled to Nicaragua to do missionary work with Amigos for Christ Organization. Their involvement amongst multiple villages compelled the students to do more. After spending some time strategizing the team agreed to personally donate 20 percent of all product revenue to the charity.
