to increase their income

The Street Business School curriculum can more than double incomes of graduates.

Our ready-to-deliver entrepreneurial training curriculum breaks down traditional stereotypes, builds confidence and provides practical business skills. Through an 8-day in-person workshop, we share our curriculum with organizations all over the globe, certifying NGO leaders to localize and embed the SBS curriculum into their own programming. Our partners work to improve a variety of issues, collectively addressing 16 out of 17 UN SDGs. If increasing the incomes of those you serve would support your mission, you’re in the right place!

A Unique Opportunity

Through our train-the-trainer workshop your organization can access the resources you need to deliver SBS in your community.
