The POCA Technical Institute is the educational arm of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture. POCA’s goal is to make acupuncture available and accessible to as many people as possible and to support those providing acupuncture to create stable and sustainable businesses and jobs. POCA Tech’s aim is to provide the cooperative with educational programs that back up its mission. Its first goal is to create entry-level training programs for acupuncturists that are affordable to prospective students of ordinary incomes. The POCA cooperative urgently needs qualified licensed acupuncturists both to work in existing community acupuncture clinics and to open new clinics in underserved areas. This is one of the most pressing necessities for the cooperative as a whole, and so it is POCA Tech’s highest priority. POCA Tech is currently raising funds to launch its entry-level training programs for acupuncturists. Every bit counts- donate today!
