Workforce Development Program

Price: Free Starts: Jun 16, 2021,   Ends: Dec 31, 2022


The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) is excited to partner with NYC Business Solutions to provide an Entrepreneurial Workforce Development Program for our Spanish speaking community members. Our goal is to support program participants in opening their own business as a way of promoting avenues for generating an income and improving their financial situation, especially now as many have experienced the devastating financial and emotional consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program begins with an orientation, followed by 3 weeks of in-person artisanal training led by KHCC staff, which will lead us into 9 virtual business-related workshops led by NYC Business Solutions Bronx Center. Upon completing the program, participants will be invited to monthly workshops to assist in growing their business and refining their skills. Each program cycle will focus on a different artesanal skill; our Summer 2021 Cohort is learning to make natural, homemade body care products.
