GPCC along with the Committee of 50 are engaged in creating and supporting leadership projects, efforts, and programs that will prepare (3) three tiers of citizens for future personal, family, educational, government, and business success; from mentor to shadowing, to training, sharing of knowledge, experiences, and wisdom. All designed for a better city, community, state and nation. This program is open to all based on the core belief.

“Grow the people and you grow the Nation.”

Tier three (3), of the three-tier plan are our Young Progressives, a group of 25 to 50 plus year-old men and women interested in being a successful part of the mainstream business success model. Additionally, having high family values, ethnic values, and a vision encouraging: educational improvement, entrepreneurship, self-determination, and community participation. Tier one is young 12–24-year-old's, Tier two are young men and women who are socially and civically involved for social change. 

The Young Progressive Business Forum is a three-part course that is dedicated to improving the effectiveness of business in contemporary society. The first forum will help cultivate fresh ideas, impactful research, and possible solutions to business challenges. This course will focus on how to close the gap between research and practice and enable evidence-based business management. 

Business Development Forums

Join us for a Business Development Forum, as we sources and increase job opportunities for the people we serve. We will study what others are doing to diversify their services and markets, and we will brainstorm ways for us to do the same—for both private and public sectors. We will also discuss strategies for communicating with our various audiences through email, social media, video and more. Discuss ways to multiply our income

Now is the time to diversify our thought process, and redefine our vision! With so much uncertainty on our future, we want to multiply our lines of income and boost up our resources. Unpredictable factors like increasing minimum wages, political opposition to workshops and the threat of an end to commensurate wages should not cause rehabilitation industries to hold back new development but, instead, should serve as the impetus to become more entrepreneurial.
