Abstract

The Business Learning Group Program (KBU) is one of the non-formal education programs that is expected to improve community welfare while reducing poverty. Basically, business learning groups focus on skill education and business training for low-educated and poor citizens. In the village of Lauwonu in Tilango, Gorontalo Regency, there is a business learning group (KBU) which is fostered by Community Learning Center (PKBM) Harapan Indah. The survey results explained that the business learning group (KBU) did not work as it should be. On the other hand, the potential of residents in Lauwonu village is quite supportive. This study aims to obtain an overview of: (1) the implementation of business learning group programs (KBU); and (2) efforts to empower citizens to optimize business learning groups (KBU) The method used is a qualitative method with steps that include: data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion drawing/verification. The technique used to check the validity of the data in this study is Triangulation. The results obtained are expected to improve the implementation of business learning group programs (KBU) as well as empowering citizens to optimize the program. The results showed that the implementation of business learning groups principally included three aspects: the profile of this KBU, the motivation of the community to join KBU, and learning activity in KBU. Furthermore, community empowerment in the context of optimizing KBU includes: community skill development, behavior change, and organizing.
