Workshops For Individuals

Take Control of Your Life

Are you living in a state of constant crisis? It’s time to take back control and take the first step toward creating the life you want to live.

You Can Get Ahead

If you are constantly struggling to make ends meet, living paycheck to paycheck, and cannot see a way out, our eight to nine-week Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World workshop is for you.

You will be introduced to a new perspective, and you’ll learn that you have the power to influence your future and create positive change for yourself and your loved ones. You can break the poverty cycle once and for all! And, as a bonus, you will earn $400 while you learn!
