Skills 2 Career




Our nation is facing significant occupational skills gaps and job vacancies, across multiple industries, due to an unskilled employee candidate pool.

Today, the top priority is to generate a skilled workforce pipeline, reinvigorate interest in the trades, as well as, create skills training programs to meet industry demands.

Connections 4 Success is dedicated to upskilling our nation’s workforce with our packaged Skills 2 Careers Program.

The Skills 2 Careers Program allows high school students to:

  • Align their skills and interests to career requirements
  • Gain awareness of occupational growth trends by exploring the Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, job summaries, and career industries
  • Gain up to 120-300 hours of on-the-job skills training during 8-10 week internship placements with businesses
  • Improvement critical thinking, interpersonal, and collaboration skills

The Skills 2 Careers Program allows employers to:

  • Create a workforce pipeline
  • Train future employees with an after-school internship program
  • Invest in early skills development

The Skills 2 Careers Training Program has THREE training components for the Public Sector and Nonprofits, Employers, and Parents/Guardians!
