You can help NWTC close the talent gap in Northeast Wisconsin
By contributing to the Changing Lives Campaign you’re helping to develop the highly-skilled workforce needed to make area companies successful.
Plus, you’re partnering with NWTC to change lives—earning a college credential is a proven pathway to a family-supporting wage.
Why your support matters to your business and our community:
The possibility of a better life begins with higher education.
- Two-thirds of Northeast Wisconsin adults age 25 and older have an educational attainment level below an associate's degree.
- More than half of the job openings in Wisconsin are for jobs that require more than a high school diploma but less than a four-year degree.
- NWTC grads can obtain a family-supporting wage while staying in their home communities - 71 percent of our 2015 grads work in the District; 97 percent work in the state.
Yet each year more students are struggling to make ends meet. Affordability has become a growing barrier to student success. Every day, NWTC students are forced to abandon their pursuit of higher education because of financial hardships.You can help more students graduate and become part of your workforce.
