The workshops are free to attend, and will run twice a month throughout December 2021. Registration is active on both the Greater Holyoke Chamber and EforAll/EparaTodos Holyoke‘s websites.

We feel passionately about providing accessible assistance to the members of our business community.”, states Jordan Hart, Executive Director of the GHC.
