Community Classroom

Our Community Classroom brings entrepreneurship education outside of CWE’s Centers and into the communities we serves, fostering small business growth by offering trainings and business resources in areas where aspiring and established entrepreneurs need us most. The program ensures that women (and men) have a place to go to get the critical skills, quality training, technical assistance and confidence they need to start and grow a viable business.
