Jr. Scoop is an entrepreneurial group of middle school students based in Wilsonville, Oregon.  The students run the Jr. Scoop Ice Cream Company, a nonprofit, with the purpose of acquiring essential business skills while creating high quality, delicious ice cream. The students fill out an application, go through an interview process, then join a group of like-minded students working in design, social media, sales and marketing, or ice cream development.

Along their journey, Jr. Scoop has partnered with the local Kiwanis Club and became the city’s first Builder’s Club.  Donna Bane, from Kiwanis, became one of their mentors and helped write their first grant which contributed $1,800 for the company’s blast freezer.

As part of a healthy business philosophy, Jr. Scoop seeks out opportunities to volunteer in the local community. Each year, the Team donates a portion of their profits to local charities and schools in the area.
