How We Help
3 steps to success
SkillUp.org is a new resource built to help people break into growing career fields. We’re a nonprofit dedicated to helping workers who lost jobs or wages because of coronavirus. Here’s how our free service works:
Get Career Guidance

Get Career Training
Find free and low-cost programs that match your career goals
Connect to open jobs that will also help you advance your education and learn new skills
So, how does SkillUp work? Here are answers to some of the most common questions we hear.
What do you mean by ‘in-demand jobs’?
SkillUp helps people discover jobs that pay well, plus offer opportunities for growth and advancement. Our career catalog spans business, technology, healthcare, skilled trades, and supply chain.
Why should I take the time to register with SkillUp?
We know this might be a very stressful time for you and we’ve built SkillUp to quickly provide relief to you and others in need. Our free tool can help you discover in-demand jobs available to you now or after a short training program. It takes less than two minutes to get your personalized recommendations.
How much do the training programs cost, will I have to take on debt?
We’ve done our best to find the best free and low-cost training programs where available, but some do require tuition. That’s because we want to make sure they are worth your time and will help you prepare for in-demand jobs. Soon we’ll be able to help you tap into available government financial aid and we’re working with partners to raise funds to help cover your tuition costs.
