courses from carolina creative works

We teach a variety of courses – those designed for individuals and entrepreneurs; longer courses for nonprofit and government employees; and courses in partnership with small business development agencies, universities, and others.
We teach because we love to share what we’re learning, and we love to learn…it’s one of our favorite parts of this work.

We’re currently beta testing our first online course rollout for individuals, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit and local government professionals. Individual courses will be available online, to take at your own pace, with video lectures, resources, and assignments you can complete on your own time. 

We’ll update this page as soon as we’re ready, and in the meantime, you can sign up to be the first to know by reaching out here.
