Align Targets - Develop a Workforce

Houston's economy flourished the last several years. While this bloom of industries and organizations strengthened Houston, the city felt slight growth pangs. In short, business leaders across Houston noticed that they need industry tailored midlle-skill workforce training.

This workforce initiative's seminal moment begins with with The Greater Houston Partnership's UpSkill Houston campaign. This campaign is an industry-led approach, an effort to build a bridge from existing skill sets to industry guided training for middle skills positions.

Above all, UpSkill Houston is an innovative blueprint, a plan for local businesses, educational institutions, and service organizations to build a quality Houston workforce together.
