What’s New?

New Program Launches - We have 13 new programs scheduled for release in 2021 including two which launched earlier this year:

New Partnerships - We’re always growing our healthcare employer and workforce grant partnerships, our three latest include:

  • SkillUp Coalition Together Fund - We joined SkillUp Coalition to provide rapid upskilling opportunities for workers displaced by COVID-19. This collaboration produced the SkillUP Together Fund which aims to provide immediate tuition and training assistance to at least 30,000 frontline workers.

  • Equus Workforce Solutions - We partnered with Equus Workforce Solutions to connect career seekers with training and registered apprenticeship opportunities in the in-demand industries of healthcare and IT.

  • National Association of Workforce Boards -We’re proud to be named a "Business & Industry Alliance Champion" by NAWB and have collaborated on technology-based learning solutions to help local workforce boards offer additional reskilling resources. This partnership has also allowed us to produce content for the workforce population to expand upon skill development, training, and employment. Look out for our Town Hall Event with NAWB in mid-April!
