Anyone can apply to our programs. The qualities that we are looking for are: curiosity,  persistenceresilience and community orientation. If you possess these qualities, then the SkillsUP Lab could be an excellent experience for you! 

Data AnalysisIf you become a member of our next cohort, you can expect to grow technically, personally and professionally. You’ll be joined by people from interesting backgrounds and experiences. You’ll join an inclusive data community 

In your cohort, you will find people who are: upskilling to grow with their current employer, reskilling to find new work, those who want to increase their own technical knowledge and entrepreneurs. 

During the program, everyone follows the same curriculum – including Power Skills and additional Special Topic classes. Everyone is held to the same standards regarding attendance, participation, progress and honor code. 

With the completion of the capstone, the next phase begins for those seeking new work. If you are joining our cohort and in search of new work, we will follow one of two paths with you, based on your choice. The first option is that we will partner with you to find a new employer with the goal of you starting with them directly. The second option is that if you meet all of the criteria, we will offer you a traineeship to start with The Do Good Only Company or other carefully selected partners. The traineeship is paid and is extended for six months at a time. During your traineeship, we will continue to work with you on finding a long term employer, if that is your wish. 

As a data professional, we expect that you will be an eager, curious problem solver with data science and analytics skills that you want to apply to real-world business challenges. It’s not only commercial companies that need these skills. Non-profits and public service need them as well.
