How we started as a Cooperative:

We were all members of Make The Road New York (MTRNY) when we became authorized instructors of OSHA. After offering the trainer in community organizations like MTRNY, Sisa Pacari, and NICE for so many years, we began to think bigger.  To unite and work for ourselves. As authorized trainers, our next goal was to become a business. We began to offer the class in Spanish due to the need within the Spanish workforce. We created this worker-owned business for all of us to have the same opportunities to grow. We have been continuously offering the OSHA training for several years.

Como Empezamos en la Cooperativa:

Después de ofrecer entrenamientos en organizaciones comunitarias como SHCNY, Sisa Pacari, y NICE por varios años, empezamos a pensar mas grande. Unirnos y trabajar por nosotros mismos. Como instructores autorizados, nuestro próximo objetivo era convertirnos en un negocio. Comenzamos a ofrecer la clase en español debido a la necesidad dentro de la fuerza laboral española. Creamos este negocio para que todos tengamos las mismas oportunidades de crecer. Hemos estado ofreciendo continuamente los entrenamientos de OSHA por varios años.
