About LevelUp NYC

LevelUp NYC is proud to partner with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to support New York City workers. Our non-profit provides career exploration tools, career coaching, training and education programs, and local employer connections. Our goal is simple – to get local workers into high growth, in-demand jobs.

For over 100 years, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce has spoken to the needs of the Brooklyn business community. Founded on February 6, 1918, the Brooklyn Chamber was, even then, a “modern” organization that saw itself as a protector and promoter of the commercial and industrial interests of the city.

As Brooklyn continues to evolve, the Brooklyn Chamber consistently works to offer top-quality services and new opportunities for its members. It advances the borough through outstanding promotion, support and advocacy as Brooklyn’s leading economic development organization.

Having a family, the most important thing for me is creating a work-life balance. And SkillUp has shown me how to find the right opportunity at the right time.”

The confidence to do that, the importance of that for both myself and my career, has really come into focus during my SkillUp journey.”

Career Coaching Participant

“ SkillUp is like therapy. 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 SkillUp! ”
