Skills Up North Recognizes First Students to Complete the Program

Northwest Michigan Works! and the Traverse Bay Area ISD held a completion ceremony to recognize the first participants in the Skills Up North program. The 11 members of the first class completed course work in automotive technology, culinary arts, or welding and fabrication. They also worked on completing their GEDs or improving their academic skills. The program is designed to help the students learn skills to improve their employability and wage earning potential. Watch the video to find out more. You can also find more information by going to the Skills Up North section of the TBAISD website.



Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
