Worker Co-ops 101


The October and November dates for this course are full! Register now for the December 4th course. Join us from 3-6PM.

The price of this course is reduced thanks to a grant from the CHS Foundation.

Get to know the basics of worker cooperatives, how they work and what they do, from management to the everyday practice of cooperation. Worker cooperatives are democratically and equally owned by the workers, and adhere to the principles of one worker, one share, one vote. Through activities, guided readings, and facilitated conversations with worker-cooperative professionals and other students, participants will become familiar with how co-ops work and the growing worker-cooperative movement.

You will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.


  • Learn with co-op educators, developers, and co-op professionals
  • Develop an understanding of cooperatives and the cooperative economy
  • Learn about and participate in the burgeoning cooperative movement
