The objective of this campaign is to fund the design & creation of website "FreeTradeSkills.org" and a free video library - Think "Khan Academy" for The Trades.
Chadds Ford, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2013 -- The Problem:
There is a skills gap. And it's hurting all Americans.
The problem is compounded by two factors;
1. Older skilled workers are retiring faster than younger people are being trained to replace them.
2. Education & training budgets are being cut, further reducing the supply of trained workers.
It’s a vicious cycle – skilled workers are needed and training is reduced.
Eric and Travis Bergwall have decided to do what they can to produce massive social awareness and value. With a free website featuring high-quality, curriculum-based, video training, they can start to help these individuals in need and close the skills gap.
They hope that hundreds of thousands of people seeking training will have access to their high-quality free video courses via their new website.
It is no secret that the list of educational and training concerns are growing far more quickly than the ability of traditional sectors to address them.
The team on this project envisions a world in which these vexing concerns are overcome, and they see Social Enterprise as, quite possibly, the single most hopeful vehicle for doing so.
Eric and Travis are asking for funding support for their efforts to design, create, and build this new website so that they can start helping millions of people better their lives through education and employment while trying to close the skills gap.
This campaign will only receive funds if at least $20,000 is raised by its deadline - September 15, 2013 - October 14, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
