Sweet! thanks for posting us.

LearnUp is an innovative startup that crowdsources job skills training from professionals and employers directly. Launched on stage with Pres Clinton at CGI last week, and rolling out to 16-24 with partnerships at CA Community Colleges and more.

Would love to chat further and engage with the openideo initiative.

This does indeed look an interesting initiative.
I'm curious how the employers contribute to training and how partnering at the college level would work. The site itself provides minimal information on this
Does the site also accommodate learners who may not be either college graduates or currently at college?
If so, what job success rate is there for non-college learners?

Hey Paul, Thanks for these great questions.

Anyone can access LearnUp from around the globe... from the highschool student to community college student to the jobseeker of any type/education/age. As a start, colleges are actively distributing this to students as a way to help them gain relevant job skills and get hired.

Leading employers are already contacting "top learners" on LearnUp for open jobs! (including both college and non-college learners).

Employers are also sharing job training modules for anyone to learn:
