6CEO Northern Navajo Development

Capacity Builders Inc. was recently awarded a USDA grant to provide technical assistance on business, economic, and land 6CEOdevelopment to benefit residents and leaders of the Navajo Nation. What we refer to as the Six Northern Navajo Chapter’s Economic Opportunity Initiative or “6CEO,” the grant specifically services the 6 Northern Navajo Chapters of the San Juan River Valley beginning just west of Kirtland, New Mexico, and extending west to the Shiprock Chapter.  6CEO training and technical assistance is specifically being offered to Chapter elected officials, Chapter staff, Community Land Use Planning Committee members, and members of the community at large, from the San Juan, Nenahnezad, Tse D’aa K’aan, Tiis Tsoh Sikaad, Upper Fruitland, and Shiprock Chapters.

During the month of August (2016), Farmington (NM) nonprofit, Capacity Builders Inc., is inviting this community to attend a free workshop on starting and growing one’s business on the Navajo Nation. Capacity Builders Inc. will be providing lunch, and in-depth training on business development. Attendees will enjoy learning about business planning and management basics and will have the opportunity to connect with entrepreneurs in the community. Attendees will also take an entrepreneurial fitness test to see if they have what it takes to start a successful business. It is the goal of our 6CEO initiative to support the DINÉ to enhance one’s income, business profitability, and economic independence. No strings attached. We can’t wait to spend the day with you! We accept registrations on a first come basis due to limited space.
