The Centre will strengthen our community by fostering unity, self-determination, inclusivity, cooperative economics, collective work, and creativity.  

The world has changed in a way that requires everyone to THINK like an entrepreneur.  Participants will develop entrepreneurial skills, innovative mindset, be drivers of change and empowering the ACB community that will help them approach changing environments to live effective and successful lives.  Also the ACB centre wil be dedicated to and for black focused services and programs to resolve systemic barriers and challenges within our community.  

The ACB centre will  facilitate in helping our youths to expand their creative minds, grow and share their business creativity, offer job training and counselling, collaborating and partnering with other oganizations, recreational services, health resources, career counselling, senior information sessions and solutions, mentoring, women support groups and programs, meeting spaces, workshops, financial services, legal services,  new immigrant services and housing solutions faced in the ACB community.
