Our “Empire Builders/ Ground Breakers ~ Jovenes Empresarios” course will cover those areas and build the skills necessary to participate as a productive community builder.
Qualifications:Young professionals that are 40 years of age or younger who are owners of their own company and or management at the company they are currently with.
