“I was so lost and confused. I was laid off from my job of over 10 years and did not know where to start. I felt so lost. Your coaching gives me hope and makes me feel like I am not alone. It helped me realize that these things happen (job loss) and that there is opportunity out there and I have support. Thank you!”
“ The financial support from the SkillUp partnership has helped to support me through my IT Support Course by helping to provide me with my essentials and assisting my family with groceries.

“ We built SkillUp to collectively rise to this moment and push forward the kind of upskilling and training needed to support our country’s workforce. We are in grave risk of a ‘K-shaped recovery’ where low-wage workers who bore the brunt of COVID’s economic impact are now being left out of an equitable recovery. ”
Executive Director of SkillUp Coalition
“ We’re living through a period of high uncertainty and generational change. SkillUp is working to reshape the American workforce in a way that benefits those most impacted by the pandemic. I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead these efforts, work with an incredible coalition of partners, and build on the work SkillUp launched in 2020. ”
