All Helping Hands students will earn credit in Social Science and Business through the operation of a student-maintained business. Students learn how to plan, promote, create and provide services to the community. They use computers and other business machines
and procedures to conduct daily business transactions. Students learn public relations skills and learn to work in a cooperative manner with co-workers, supervisors, and customers. Grades are based on classroom performance, record keeping, participation at
the worksite, attitude, and willingness to work. Since worksite grades are based in part on daily participation, daily attendance is important to student success.
Prerequisite: English I, II
