North Carolina Certificate


The 3-day North Carolina Certificate program will be held in Durham, North Carolina, at the Center for Community Self-Help. The program will feature guest speakers, group discussions and exercises, case studies, and a site visit to a local, award-winning CDFI.  For details on registration and scholarship opportunities, click on the Registration Information menu on the left.

Please take special note of the following statement regarding this course being held in the state of North Carolina:

Self-Help, Opportunity Finance Network, and The Carsey School oppose and condemn the state-sponsored discrimination against transgender individuals, the LGBTQ community at large, as well as other groups who are now less protected from discriminatory practices in the workplace. State sponsored discrimination undermines our missions and the work of our allies to promote greater social justice and economic opportunity. 

Self-Help has publicly denounced HB2, and we will continue this fight in a visible way.
