Helping Entrepreneurs Reach Complete Success (HERCS)

Can’t find that perfect job? Why not create it!

HERCS program is a daylong workshop designed to help CAF family members start or improve their small business. What started as a local partnership with Loyalist College almost a decade ago has now grown to national level. The HERCS program focuses on Helping Entrepreneurs Reach Complete Success (HERCS).

The program is funded through Military Family Services (MFS) and is free to attend. All participants to the program receive a detailed manual, links to resources and ongoing support. The program is available online through WebEx so anyone can join in. All you need is a headset with microphone and a business idea to work with.  The HERCS program is reviewed and updated regularly.  It’s offered in both English and French and covers a variety of topics including:
  • small business ownership
  • marketing
  • social media
  • financing options
  • business canvas
  • resources
Registration is open to all military and veteran spouses with priority given to military spouses. Register today!
