Who We Are
Skills For Careers executes the Bowers University of Crafts, Inc. (BUC) Plan, which specializes in vocational training, enabling trainees to earn a living and start a rewarding career doing what they like. The BUC Plan is designed to attack poverty and assure trainees will rise to the mainstream to experience the American Dream. They will give back to their community.
Trainees learn a trade and earn a valuable Job-Ready BUC certification.
BUC certification will position the trainee to get a Job-Ready contract with our committed partners/employers.
BUC graduates will fill a void for trained labor in the construction industry and beyond.
The program is geared towards trainees who are not seeking a college degree but want a career using their hands and mind. Many citizens who may not have excelled in traditional educational settings, or may feel left out of what America has promised, will benefit from the BUC Plan.
