See a sample of what attendees are saying:

The immersion teaching, as if we  were the participants, has been the most helpful. Putting myself in their shoes has changed how I think about the content, and how I will teach it to the women we serve.

I feel I can create more impact, I feel I can reach out to all those people who feel less favored, people who feel that they have nothing and will never be any thing. I feel a greater spark in me, that I can light thousands of candles in the world and we can have greater light.

The Street Business School has completely changed the women in our group. They now know how to initiate means of getting capital and have learned the importance of saving.

"I can help change the world and see better and healthier families...I am EXCITED TO DO THIS!"


Through our hands-on training experience and post-workshop coaching, you’ll be equipped to train those you serve to start and grow a small business. You’ll walk away with a how-to guide and valuable insights into the secrets of this proven entrepreneurship training model.
