The Faces of the Foundation

Thanks to all the many individuals and companies who support the mikeroweWORKS Foundation in a variety of ways, we’ve been able to assist hundreds of individuals who are interested in learning a skill and mastering a trade.  Not only are they helping themselves by pursuing a great career, they are helping to close America’s Skills Gap which ultimately means they’re helping all of us.
