SB Works offers affordable business services, co-working space and experienced consultants for local small businesses.

SB Works is a new kind of community development nonprofit serving DC’s small business community. Our location at 5 Points is an accessible alternative for community space for Woodridge, Brookland, Langdon, Eckington, Edgewood, and Michigan Park.


We’re looking for talented, committed volunteers to participate in this fresh way to engage their neighborhood. Volunteering with SB Works is a great way to show your love for Ward 5 and be part of what makes it great. We also occasionally have contract and full-time positions as well as internships available. Internships may be eligible for academic credit.
