International Students Complete Entrepreneurship Program

At a ceremony today, ten students newly arrived in the U.S. were presented certificates for completing an Entrepreneurship Program offered by the Alamo Colleges District in partnership with Catholic Charities.This is the first coursework the students, from Central and South America, have completed at an American college. In addition to entrepreneurship, the students received instruction in English as a Second Language, citizenship and U.S. laws. The program is the first step for these students, who hope to achieve the American dream of owning their own business.

Alamo Colleges District Continuing Education Instructor Tony Talamantez, who taught the students, presented them with their certificates. Among the graduates is Rosa Escobedo, already the owner of Haircuts by Rosa, who enrolled in the program to increase her clientele and understand American laws. Many of the students are also studying to become U.S. citizens. The students’ small business plans range from snow cone trucks to flower shops and more. The students were recruited by Catholic Charities who approached the Alamo Colleges District about offering the program for their English Language Learners. The course was hosted in the Catholic Charities facility and and funded by a federal grant through the Alamo Colleges District’s I-BEST initiative. For more information, contact I-BEST at (210) 485-0278.
