Green Business. Worker-Owned. Doers Wanted.

We at Green Worker Cooperatives stand in solidarity with all those that are protesting the deaths of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and all of the Black women, men, and trans folks assaulted and killed by police. We feel this moment deeply because they are all us. We are a Black-led organization and mostly Black women at that. And our cooperatives are for the most part all Black & Indigenous People of Color. We feel the same rage that is burning in the streets. We also feel fear as we watch the neo-fascism of the White House infect NYC and other cities nationwide that have responded to protests with curfews and militarized police and National Guard troops while protestors are gassed, beaten, run over, and even killed.

    Co-op 101: Worker Co-op Basics


    If you're interested in starting a small business, or if you're already in early stages of business formation, check-out our Co-op 101 info session.

    This is an interactive session to learn how to:

    - Create your own job & job security

    - Own and manage a business with others

    - Create a business that's responsible for its impact on the environment

    - Hire yourself, family, or neighbors

    Come to this info session, hosted by Green Worker Cooperatives, to learn the steps you will need to start a business owned and controlled by you and others.

    Bring a friend or potential partner and learn how you can participate in our Fall 2021 Co-op Academy to jump-start a worker-owned business.

    Our Academy offers support on incorporation, training for fundraising, and most importantly, business model development. It's a 5 month course, providing the technical tools to launch a business that's owned and controlled by the people who work there.

    We offer business coaching, business mentorship with a successful entrepreneur, how to operate as a "green" business, and connections to a cooperative network throughout NYC. All for free.
