About the Program

The Grand Rapids Chamber believes we have it within ourselves to create a community of uncommon greatness. To foster the further development of community trustees, we are expanding our community trusteeship programs to offer an evening leadership program exclusively for Hispanic business owners delivered in Spanish.

Each week, leaders from the cohort will take a deep dive into different systems within our community including criminal justice, education, community history, health care and economic development.

Through the program, Hispanic business owners will have stronger voices as entrepreneurs, greater knowledge in navigating systems, expanded social capital and a strengthened business lens.

Sobre el Programa

La Cámara de Comercio de Grand Rapids cree que depende de nosotros crear una comunidad de grandeza inigualable, fomentando así un mayor desarrollo de los fideicomisos comunitarios. Es por ello que estamos ampliando nuestros servicios, ofreciendo un programa nocturno de liderazgo exclusivo para dueños de negocios hispanos, completamente en español.

Cada semana, los líderes de la clase profundizarán en los diferentes sistemas de nuestra comunidad, incluyendo justicia penal, educación, historia de la comunidad, atención médica y desarrollo económico.

A través de este programa, los dueños de negocios hispanos tendrán una voz más fuerte como empresarios, mayor conocimiento navegando nuestros sistemas locales, aumentarán su capital social y fortalecerán su perspectiva empresarial.
