Our Inspiration

The Change Academy was inspired by the needs of African American business owners in disadvantaged and underserved communities after the many civil unrests we have faced in the past 10 years. The Change Academy aspires to develop a diverse community of Christian leaders by empowering small business owners with the knowledge, tools, and resources to successfully tap the marketplace and achieve their overall dreams.
