Statewide nonprofit helps move families out of poverty through free job trainings for single mothers

  • Date: 12/14/2023

Over the past 37 years, Climb Wyoming has worked to break cycles of generational poverty by supporting single moms throughout the state. The organization’s 12-week programs prepare women for jobs that are tailored to the needs in their own communities.

According to the nonprofit’s 2023 Progress Report, Climb Wyoming has served 12,000 moms and 25,000 children since it was founded in 1986. Over the last five years, an average of 97 percent of people graduate from the programs. It guarantees that women who finish the training will be employed.

The programs help prepare women for careers in truck driving and transportation, with training to receive Class A and B commercial driver’s licenses. They also help women get a foot into the medical world, with training to become a certified nursing assistant and certified medical assistant. In the past, they’ve also offered training in plumbing, pipe-fitting training, welding, and in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) maintenance.
