A Chicago group is tackling the city’s skills gap by retraining workers and using that to get a hiring commitment from large companies.

Skills for Chicagoland’s Future just received $900,000 in federal funding to train workers with new skills.  They call it a win for companies that want to hire but can’t afford to train new people.

SPR Companies is one company taking advantage of the program.

RayNay Vallas finished the program and went from an out of work architect to now testing software.  Thursday at 5pm learn more about Skills for Chicagoland’s Future.
