We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that focuses on the professional development and technical training of minorities and disenfranchised communities impacted by the “War on Drugs”, who are interested in becoming cannabis industry professionals. We’re creating invaluable workforce development opportunities for a demographic that needs and deserves it the most.
