Why Sliding Scale?

We believe that education should be accessible across socio-economic lines, and so we have set our prices on a sliding scale. Please consider your budget when choosing what to pay; if you have more, please pay the suggested price or higher so that those with less can pay a smaller amount. We'd also like you to consider how much you value what you are purchasing, and keep in mind that we are a four-person worker cooperative that is working to make a living. Thank you for supporting our work!

Worker Co-ops 101

  • Image 1
Price:
$30.00


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.

This course will take place on April 22nd and 24th. It will be five hours total over two nights. We will poll participants to find the best time to hold the sessions. It will be offered again every other month.

Highlights:

  • 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

TESA has developed a wide range of educational resources and programs that have been implemented on local, regional, national, and even international levels. Our cooperative work includes creating Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives; fostering nearly 100 workshops around the country in 2012; coordinating Cultivate.Coop; working with four different organizations on cooperative incubation programs; leading cooperative courses at Greenfield Community College; and much more.
