Description

Organization Profile
Skills for Chicagoland’s Future (Skills) is a public-private partnership driven to meet the talent demands of businesses, and to be a catalyst for systemic change and innovation. The force behind this drive is centered on our mission to get the unemployed and underemployed back to work. By focusing on the hiring demand of employers, Skills has created a paradigm shift in the general supply-driven approach to workforce development. The impact of this demand-driven approach can be seen through both the employers’ skilled and diverse workforce, and the economic mobility provided to the job seekers who are no longer unemployed/underemployed. Launched in 2012, Skills’ foundation is built on its strong employer partner relationships, dedicated Board of Directors, and funding support from both the City of Chicago and private donors. To date, Skills has directly impacted the lives of 2,300+ job seekers who were returned to work, and the bottom-line for over 50 employer partners.
