Carmen Moreno

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! ”

About LevelUp NYC

Joining Together for COVID-19 Recovery

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.



General Questions

So, how does LevelUp NYC, powered by SkillUp work? Here are answers to some of the most common questions we hear. 

What exactly is upskilling?

Upskilling is the act of acquiring more career skills and connections through additional short-term education and training.

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.

Do you offer any financial support?
Our SkillUp Together Fund launched in February 2021 and provides up to $1,000 in assistance for workers participating in select training programs. You can find detailed information within our SkillUp Together Fund tab at the top of our site or
Do you provide personal coaching or other 1:1 support?

We do offer small group career coaching sessions (virtually) and also have a wonderful Facebook Community that connects workers and supports looking to network during their career exploration. You can find detailed information within the “Coaching & Community” Resource page.
