Our aim is to improve the lives of others, especially disadvantaged communities through direct services.Direct service includes tutoring,job training, serving meals, , helping refugee families, and more.
The Entrepreneur Training Program (ETP) is a 24-hour business start-up training for entrepreneurs that want to start a new business but are not sure where to begin. Participants can also take advantage of our free business consulting services in order to help them complete their business plan, receive the proper licenses and permits, and apply for start-up business loans.
