Custom Collaborative's comprehensive paid training program covers 14 primary subjects in the art, craft, technique, and business of clothing. Annually, 30 students will graduate equipped with marketable and key business planning skills. We are creating a network of skilled professionals and cultivating a customer base to extend Custom Collaborative's social and economic impact.
Custom Collaborative will offer management consulting, mentorship, technical assistance, advanced training, and professional equipment to participants who have completed the training program and to others in the garment industry. Our goal is to maximize the opportunity to create jobs and strengthen local economies.
