Hello everyone, my name is Christopher La'Cour, the founder of La'Couria. I would like to introduce you to the organization as well as our mission of transferring urban individuals living in underprivileged environments into business men and women with refined culture and mannerisms. Our most effective method in reaching our above goals will be to provide a hands-on experience for the students.
The most essential tool used to do so, is the infrastructure of our organization; which is a simulated version of the United States economy. Or what we prefer to refer to as the micro-economy.
To summarize this micro economy, it will consist of imitation institutions and companies (micro businesses) that will be operated and created by the students in the organization (for educational purposes, though, in essence, we are creating our own little world). This is similar to a nursing school that creates the hospital environment to train nurses. Except, we are teaching our students business as well as their position and effect in the world around them. We are exposing them to the bigger picture, so to speak.
