One Hen is Boston Scores’ flagship service-learning program. This website will be integrated with bostonscores.org and expanded to serve as the organization’s online education platform, supplying curricula and teaching tools to help youth build micro-businesses and invest the proceeds in global and local causes that students choose.
One Hen guides students through the basics of starting a micro-business. Students learn about loans, marketing, product development, and the important role businesses have in the community. Students then donate the profits from their businesses to address an identified social issue.
One Hen is also offered year-round to local schools and globally via our online education platform.
Together, Boston Scores and One Hen will empower youth to create positive change in their lives, in their communities and around the world. Our programs improve students’ health, academic engagement and global citizenship.
