Skills for ChicagoLand's Future
Description:
Skills for Chicagoland’s Future (Skills) is a public-private partnership working to match businesses that have current, unmet hiring needs with qualified, unemployed and underemployed job seekers.

Our Mission – Create demand-driven solutions for employers to get the unemployed and underemployed to work.

Our Vision – Continuously meet employers’ talent needs to create economic opportunity for the unemployed and underemployed.

As a national thought leader in creating innovative, demand-driven workforce solutions, Skills has been tapped as a resource demonstrating the need for business intermediaries both locally and nationally.

Since Skills launched in September 2012, thousands of unemployed/underemployed job seekers have been placed at our growing list of employer partners – creating opportunities to increase economic mobility for Chicagoland area residents and solving talent solutions of local businesses. Beyond our local impact, we provide consulting services for organizations interested in developing or adapting the Skills demand-driven model in their region.
