We offer an education program taught by experienced professionals of color. Instructors help families improve their financial literacy and understanding of homeownership.
Education programs are sponsored and supported by:
Wealth Building Courses
Our two courses — Wealth Building and Homeownership — are built on a social justice framework. We also provide continued support and mentorship beyond the classroom.
Education for Real Estate Professionals
We provide education materials for real estate professionals to learn about the impacts of racial discrimination in housing and how to become effective allies to Black and Brown homebuyers.
We have also established the Ambassador Program for professionals ready to make a commitment to social justice in the Greater Madison housing market.
Education for the Community
In the future, we plan to host workshops for the public discussing the lasting impacts of racial discrimination in housing and the importance of establishing systematic funding mechanisms.
At this time, we encourage community members to review our list of education materials for an in-depth look at the persistent barriers to homeownership.
We need a broad base of support to grow the program, so please tell your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues about OWN IT: Building Black Wealth. See the Community Support page for ideas.
