Business Boot Camp Initiative
Urban Philanthropies has teamed up with the Partners for Self Employment to provide Entrepreneurial and Financial Literacy Training, combined with peer-evaluated business loans to be granted to selected future business owners to assist in a successful startup.
Some of the Curriculum Courses include developing a business strategy, basic cash flow, marketing and customer research, and the development of a marketing strategy. After classroom completion, participants will present business plans and apply for micro loans to start their business in the Miami community, with guidance from Urban Philanthropies.
Urban Warriors Cyber Security Job Training Initiative
The primary goals of this computer training program sponsored by Urban Philanthropies is to better prepare residents for higher paying technical jobs and to increase the diversity in those jobs by preparing residents to meet the technical needs of the industry. Core IT skills based on (DoD) Department of Defense protocols will be adopted to provide guidance and procedures for the training and certification program.
Rent Subsidy Initiative
This program is designed to provide targeted rental assistance to families in Overtown who have been impacted by relocation and could successfully maintain housing with appropriate financial assistance and services.
