Skillpoint Alliance

The Baylor Spring 2018 Class’s evaluation found their $7,000 grant to Skillpoint Alliance to be a good decision with a good outcome. Skillpoint Alliance is a workforce development organization that provides in-demand workforce training to vulnerable members of the Central Texas community. The grant was intended for the purchase of a trailer and materials to create a mobile training station to teach students HVAC, plumbing and electrical skills. Unfortunately, the Waco office shut down, but the funds were transferred and used in a transparent fashion for similar programs in Austin. Therefore, evaluators still considered the grant to have a good outcome.
