In 2015, Upper School students started the HathCaff— a student-run café. The entrepreneurial venture was part of HB’s Center for Business and Finance, which is offered to Upper School students and provides a well-rounded business curriculum consisting of foundational concepts and standards that develop into authentic, real-world business experiences.
This year, current Business and Finance students mentored fourth-grade girls on starting and running their own business.
“They spoke about their responsibilities in the HathCAFF,” said Fourth-Grade Teacher Jamie Stein Atlas ’03. “They will continue to help mentor the girls through monthly meetings to assess how the business is going, discuss new ideas, and work through any challenges.”
With guidance from the Upper School girls, the Prime Girls opened HathCaff Express — a weekly pop-up coffee and tea stand. But, before the grand opening, students who were interested in managing this pop-up café had to complete an application and interview process with the Upper School Hath Caff executive team. Then, came training on operations such as how to use the point of sale device and dealing with various tenders.
“This experience is so beneficial for our younger learners as well as our Upper School students as they will be working together throughout the year to run this second cafe location,” said Director of the Center for Business and Finance Molly Krist.
