The TeamWorks Cooperative Network consists of two cooperatives -- TeamWorks Cleaning and TeamWorks Sustainable Landscape Maintenance -- plus a project that nurtures the development of leadership, technical knowledge, and financing needed to further develop cooperatives.
Our mission is to advance worker-cooperatives as a practical way to create a socially-just and stable economy. We believe that capital is a tool that should be subordinate to democratic and human values, and that many entrepreneurs, workers, managers, and communities would prefer to use capital in this way if they knew how.
Many of our cooperatives' member-owners have little formal education, would have been unlikely to become business owners before joining TeamWorks, and report that the learning and economic advancement they have experienced is life-changing.
