What we do
Postsecondary attainment, be it workforce credential, two-year or four-year degree, means higher lifetime earnings, lower jobless rates, a competitive edge in the global marketplace and is also linked to improved health outcomes, community vitality, and prevention of criminal justice involvement.
The Regions Foundation, Chattanooga Chamber, Chattanooga State and United Way partnered to expand Skill Up, an earn-while-you-learn workforce training program deployed in high-poverty neighborhoods.
