Grant Description
Opportunity for Alaska individuals in eligible regions to participate in a professional development program. The program is intended for job-seekers who are looking for in-demand jobs following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Eligible applicants are those located in Anchorage.

gener8tor Skills is a virtual rapid skilling program for people looking for jobs in high-demand roles in their communities or working remotely for companies across the country. Founded in the Summer of 2020, the gener8tor Skills Accelerator was designed to help those who have lost jobs or are struggling to find employment as a result of the COVID crisis and ensuing economic downturn. gener8tor Skills graduates build their confidence alongside their technical knowledge in small cohort-based groups where they receive one-on-one support from career coaches to achieve their goals.

The program utilizes the LinkedIn Learning platform to provide high-quality instruction in fields ranging from Customer Service to Software Development. Participants earn LinkedIn Learning certificates and, in certain programs, have access to reduced fee exams to secure industry-recognized certifications. Program participants will be invited to learn alongside other participants and gain valuable new skill sets for the digital economy. All learning is self-paced to fit any schedule.
