Calling All Community Based Organizations: Learn More About the NYC Worker Cooperative Development Initiative

September 22, 2014 / SCO News

SCO Family of Services’ Center for Family Life (CFL) has been incubating worker cooperatives in Sunset Park, Brooklyn for the past eight years. We have seen how our work has helped empower our community by supporting cooperative members in their quest for fair wages and dignified employment through their cooperative businesses. In the last 2 years we have been helping other community based organizations develop worker cooperatives through our NYC Worker Cooperative Development Initiative. With the generous support of the City Council, CFL will provide 12 months of training and technical assistance to selected organizations looking to incubate worker cooperatives in their communities.
