Cayuga Community College has partnered with several organizations to create a direct-selling program that will be offered to students interested in entrepreneurship.
The Direct Selling Education Foundation and the National Association of Community College Entrepreneurship have teamed up with CCC to develop the Direct Selling Entrepreneurship Training Program. The 30-hour non-credit course will be divided into 10 modules that offer training on business concepts such as small business management, marketing and finance.
The college received a grant of $1,875 last spring from the Women’s Fund of Central New York that will be used for tuition assistance for 15 female CCC students entering this program. The first 15 women to sign up for the program will receive the reduced tuition price of $50, down from the full-price cost of $175.
The program will be offered starting on Sept. 8 at the Auburn campus of Cayuga Community College, 197 Franklin St., Auburn. To register, visit cayuga-cc.edu/communityed.
Students interested in applying for the discounted tuition may call (315) 294-8841 to register.
