Worker Cooperative Ownership
We work with community members and partner organizations to recruit, develop, launch, and provide ongoing support to worker-owned cooperative businesses. We currently support 2 businesses launched largely by survivors from our Domestic Violence Project with over $600,000 of combined revenue.
What We Do:
Develop, train and provide ongoing support to members of our worker-cooperative initiatives.
Provide technical assistance and support to help coop members hone their business skills to compete in the New York City market.
Ensure coops remain a democratically controlled workplace offering living wages and opportunities to develop new skills and assets to their members.
Who We Do it For:
Applicants must be interested in learning about business management and be committed to actively contributing to the structure of the new organization.
How to Sign Up:
Open Houses for new members are hosted annually.
Applicants are required to go through a competitive hiring process and then are trained and evaluated before being selected for membership in the cooperative.
