    Business interns manage the cafe throughout the year.  The managers order products, set pricing, promote the cafe, schedule the workers, report the income, and gain work experience while here at school!  

    The seniors managers earned their internship experience by successfully completing other business courses, and being recommended by their business teachers.

    The shifts are worked by students in business classes along with FBLA members. To sign up to work a shift, or to find out more information, explore the links below.
