Founded in February 2021, the SkillUp Together Fund provides direct support to workers seeking to reskill to secure in-demand careers.


Many displaced workers cannot afford to enroll in training classes to advance their careers.


Empower these workers through grants of up to $1000 per student to cover their training costs and supports.


Our training partners will help students land a job they’re passionate about, while also increasing their income (up to +$20K) to unlock economic mobility.
