AnewAmerica provides training and technical assistance to targeted communities for economic and social empowerment through a focus on green entrepreneurship, asset building, social responsibility and civic engagement. We offer the only program in the nation that provides low-income entrepreneurs and their families with a 3-year holistic microbusiness education program, involving customized experiential business training and coaching, certification in business planning, access to markets, industry sector incubation, asset-building support and access to credit.

We work with traditionally challenged communities, which include new Americans (new citizens, refugees and immigrants), women, minorities and low to moderate income households, to empower them to make their American dream a reality while contributing to the economic growth and social capital of their communities.
