5 YEARS IS JUST THE START Dear Supporters, Partners, and Friends: On behalf of our board and staff, and, most importantly, those job seekers served by Skills for Chicagoland’s Future, we thank you for your support of our mission and work. 2017 was a year to remember for Skills. We placed more job seekers into new jobs than in any previous year (more than 1,200), forged new partnerships to better serve those most in need, and developed new and innovative programming to serve Chicagoland residents with needs that extend beyond our traditional services. We received results from a long-term comparison study that substantiated the significant impact our services provide job seekers. In addition, we celebrated our fifth anniversar y as an organization and the placement of more than 4,500 job seekers to date. While we certainly deserve to take a moment to reflect on all that we have accomplished, we must always remember that there are thousands more in the Chicagoland area who need our help. The individual stories behind our numbers are powerful. For so many of the people we serve, a job is much more than just a place to work – it is an opportunit y, a fresh start, a pathway to restoring dignit y and economic sustainabilit y.

WE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE THOUSANDS MORE IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA WHO NEED OUR HELP.

The stories in this report speak to the incredible need—and opportunit y —in so many Chicagoland communities. No matter how the unemployment situation may appear nationally, we focus on neighborhoods where unemployment rates remain in the double digits so they are not overlooked.

None of our success from this past year would have been possible without one key element – you. Whether it was through financial or pro bono support, partnership, or knowledge -sharing, your contributions made a real and lasting impact on the lives of more than 1,200 unemployed or underemployed residents of the Chicagoland area. For that, we sincerely thank you. We hope you continue to engage with us as we continue to work to get the unemployed and underemployed back to work.

“ What I like the most, is that I’m able to help others find jobs. I can give the same help that I needed.” Gwendolyn Tidwell Implementation Analyst Hired at PeopleScout

SKILLSFORCHICAGOLANDSFUTURE.COM


PLACEMENT SPOTLIGHT In 2009, after decades of stable employment that afforded her the ability to live life comfortably and support her family, Gwendolyn Tidwell found herself in a completely unfamiliar position. Her employer, feeling the effects of the Recession, was forced to eliminate her position and lay her off. Eventually Gwendolyn was able to start finding temp jobs, after a year of not working. But this limited income was not enough to pay the bills, and Gwendolyn was forced to move in with her son. It was a situation she never thought she’d find herself in. Then she finally had the breakthrough that she desperately needed. Gwendolyn was introduced to Skills for Chicagoland’s Future. With nothing to lose, she gave Skills a shot and submitted her resume. That shot paid off. Skills helped Gwendolyn land a job at PeopleScout. Gwendolyn has now been with PeopleScout for nearly five years and she has been promoted three times. She works as an Implementation Analyst, assisting with managing large projects. The experience has allowed her to grow her career, and has set her life back on the path she wants.
