Currently the focus of this sub-group is to determine the level of interest for Entrepreneurial and Small Business development, focusing on raising the awareness of existing educational business finance and career development programs. In the interest of promoting job opportunities, the subcommittee will advise the Hispanic Commission on means to improve the delivery of services and recommend policy changes needed to implement these services and/or create new ones.
