GlenOak Junior Achievement Companies
As part of the GlenOak Business Academy, senior students have the opportunity to develop their own Junior Achievement companies as a way to gain hands-on experience and apply the concepts they have learned throughout the business program. They elect their CEOs and interview for positions in the company. They are responsible for producing, marketing, and selling their products as well as keeping financial records of their profits just as you would in any company.

Project Pet: Every year, an astounding $500 billion worth of perfectly good clothing ends up in landfills, contributing to environmental pollution through the emission of toxic gases. Recognizing the urgency to address this issue, students from GlenOak High School, under their Junior Achievement company 'Project Pet', have devised an innovative solution. Their initiative aims to significantly reduce clothing waste while simultaneously aiding our furry friends.
Project Pet specializes in crafting environmentally friendly pet beds at affordable prices. This is achieved by upcycling discarded clothing to create a comfortable stuffing for these beds. Emphasizing both style and sustainability, the company offers a range of bed sizes, including a small/medium option (20inx30in) for $30 and a larger size (30inx40in) for $40, with the option for personalized name customization. Demonstrating their commitment to animal welfare, Project Pet pledges to donate one bed to the local humane society for every five beds sold. To learn more about Project Pet’s products and their mission, interested individuals can reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow them on Instagram at @projectpet24.
