Who We Are

Skillpoint Alliance is a 501(c)3 social enterprise that builds partnerships among industry, education and the community, leading to college and career success for Central Texans, while meeting employers’ needs for a qualified workforce.


Mission

We facilitate and sustain industry-led workforce development solutions, while addressing the need to develop local talent and provide educational opportunities leading to college and career success for our citizens.

Vision

Every Texan is given an opportunity for growth and advancement by ensuring education and training is accessible, setting them on a path of excellence in life.

 

Our Programs

Skillpoint is always expanding its program offerings based on workforce needs in the region. Since the first graduating class in 1994, Skillpoint’s rapid job training program, Gateway, has expanded to offer six certifications across the construction, manufacturing and healthcare industries. In 1998, we began Empower, a computer proficiency program designed to help prepare adults to compete in the technology-driven workplace. After a shortage of engineers emerged in 2001, Skillpoint facilitated solutions for increasing access to STEM education. Now, we offer project-based STEM Innovation Camps for children ages 3-14, and provide underrepresented high school students the opportunity for hands-on experience in a STEM career through Velocity.

Since 1994, Skillpoint has impacted more than 135,000 Texans.
