Climb Wyoming’s Cheyenne program was the first established in the state, back in 1986. Since that time, the program has trained women in industrial systems technology, commercial driving, construction trades, office careers, and healthcare careers. In 2011, the site expanded, giving the Cheyenne program an opportunity to more than double the number of moms served in the community.
Climb Wyoming is a resource and information hub for you during the COVID-19 situation, in addition to continuing to provide job training and placement services. As we look ahead and plan future programs, we are researching the workforce needs in our communities so that we can provide trainings and job placements that prepare single moms to work in professional jobs and be self-sufficient. We want to hear from you! ! We’d like to connect about your questions, needs, and upcoming programs, so please call us or write us.
