“I have loved the training and think that this is clearly the best way to get into the business and to build 500 communities.”
– Testimonial from a member of the 2015-16 Trainee Class
Imagine a world where cohousing becomes the new normal. Imagine every town of more than 50,000 people has at least one senior cohousing community and one intergenerational community. Imagine 500 communities created in the next five to ten years in the United States alone. If this is to become a reality, many people with many talents must become involved in creating communities.
If you believe in the power of community,
And you have an entrepreneurial spirit,
And want to contribute to developing communities,
And are ready for a challenging career that aligns with your passions…
Our 500 Communities Program may be for you!
The first-year class of CoHousing Solutions’ 500 Communities Program has ended and our 2016 class is currently in training. The Program is for passionate entrepreneurs who want to devote themselves to the goal of building the next 500 communities while working collaboratively, supporting each other and making a good living.
Over the last three decades, CoHousing Solutions President Katie McCamant has consulted on, designed or developed dozens of cohousing communities. Having worked with small and large, urban and rural, developer driven and group developed communities, she learned the keys to building strong, environmentally and financially sustainable communities.
Through this Program, Katie is formalizing what she’s been doing for years informally: train other collaborators to grow the ability of CoHousing Solutions to meet the expanding need for professional support in creating new communities.
