ENTREPRENEURSHIP & SCALABILITY
INTERGENERATIONAL WEALTH PROGRAM
The Intergenerational Wealth Program (IWP) is established to improve the depletion of wealth and lack of access to capital that black and brown communities have endured, specifically a program self-actualized by the young people of Queensbridge. IWP, launched on December 23rd, 2020, is therefore an initiative that aims to bring an influx of capital into black and brown communities and foster a culture of entrepreneurship within neighborhoods of more color.
CCD has since opened dozens of bank accounts for youth in Queensbridge, to begin their credit history and invest in their savings for longevity during this launch.
Operation Freedom provides a meticulous, step-by-step “greenprint” to build the internal and external structure of your organization, detailed in a handbook created by Community Capacity Development (CCD). This handbook provides technical assistance and strategies for cultivating an operation of your own ambition and cultural fulfillment.
