Thank you to Thrivent and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation for their financial support to bring this Talent Hub resource to fruition. 

United Way Fox Cities partnered with Microsoft Philanthropies to launch an UpSkill-A-Thon, which is a free learning competition to help students, job seekers, employees, volunteers and professionals become more prepared for in-demand roles in the digital economy. The competition will run from now through to March 31, 2023 and will include $10,000 in prize money split between the top 12 participants in Brown, Outagamie, Calumet and Winnebago counties. 


Participants will have access to the site for one year through February 2024 so if they are not able, or interested in participating in the UpSkill-A-Thon, they still have a chance to learn and grow with the trainings offered. 


The training is free to participants of any age and in any Wisconsin community. Only those 16 years of age or older, and who reside in the four counties listed above, are eligible for cash prizes. 

You can also visit the FAQ page on the site as well. To learn more, please contact United Way Fox Cities at:
