The Business Seminar to Begin in April

By Faith Josephs, Worker Center Coordinator
April 06, 2016

2016 is the third year of the Latin American Coalition’s Business Seminar that is held in collaboration with the Latin American Chamber of Commerce (LACCC). This year, the Seminar will include two classes, taught by AARP on personal Financial Literacy, to help program participants manage and enhance their personal finances to effectively open a small business.

A previous Business Seminar participant, who had several business ideas, reported he took the class to gather more knowledge and to make smarter business decisions. “The Seminar was tremendously helpful and even better that it was taught in Spanish.”

Another participant, who makes and sells her artisanal jewelry, stated “it was a great course, I learned about the legal procedures required for a business, smart investing practices and how to manage my business in general.” 

The Seminar has six classes and are each from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at the Latin American Coalition.

April 21: Financial Literacy with AARP - Budgeting and Goal Setting

May 5: Financial Literacy with AARP - Credit and Debt

May 19: Business 101 - Business Registration and Beginning Requirements

June 2: Business 102 - How to Manage Business Finances
