Income And Asset Development 101

AC CAN is designing an introductory training curriculum for new staff at AC CAN member organizations and other partners new to the field of income and asset development, but whose work relates to income and asset development (e.g., workforce development, re-entry service providers, etc.) The interactive three-hour course, IAD 101, provides participants with basic knowledge of the income and asset development field and associated services, as well as an overview of the diverse needs of clients served by AC CAN member organizations. AC CAN will pilot the curriculum in the fall of 2016.
