Olympic Students Establish eCommerce Website
Learning while Earning for those in Need

Olympic High School(December 13, 2013)  The Olympicís Renaissance High School has created an eCommerce web site, www.studentecommerce.org, which is designed to help students develop business acumen by planning and executing a real world venture whose proceeds are primarily targeted to help the less fortunate.

Socially responsible products (not the traditional candy or cookie dough) are sold from the eCommerce site to support fundraising activities that help the needy. Although the eCommerce site has gone live for the Christmas shopping season, it is available year round.

"The main goal for students is to learn eCommerce as well as fundamental business principals and practices embraced in the real world," says Olympic Junior, Judith Garcia.

The eCommerce site sells student art and helps homeless students by accepting donations for school supplies. The products keep on giving as sales of the Breast Cancer Pink Tool Kits and First Aid Kits support a variety of causes. The fair trade and environmentally friendly coffee product offered on the site supports widowed coffee growers in Central America. 

It's very efficient for the students, the staff, and customers to avoid sales calls and handling products and cash. They also list those businesses and individuals who support the students on the site. In addition, there are links to join our PTA & Booster Clubs.

At the eCommerce website's blog you can find out what is happening at Olympic, including sporting events, clubs, the band, and after school activities, as well as links to the PTA and Booster Clubs.
