Our educational courses, presented in English and Spanish, are rooted in growing equity and prosperity with a focus on serving people of color, women, and small- to mid-scale businesses.
Our educational courses support program services by ensuring that knowledge informs decisions; for example, the best uses of loan capital or the key questions to ask when negotiating a land lease. Plus, any course fees that we charge are refundable when you successfully complete a course.
