Skill Up Program

SkillUP is a free program that helps Food Stamp (SNAP) recipients get help with skills, training, and employer connections to get a job (or a better job). A SkillUP job coach will work with you to create an individual plan to help you reach your goals and start a new career. The SkillUP program can also help you:

  • Get skills you need through workshops and classes
  • Pay for short-term training and certifications
  • Pay for some daycare, work, or training costs
  • Understand your job skills and what you are interested in
  • Update or create your resume so employers can see your skills
  • Connect you with employers

If you are interested in this program, please call (417) 629-3000 or complete a pre-application form here.  Either way, staff will contact you shortly.
