Moms in Cheyenne’s recent training came to Climb Wyoming ready to move from low-wage jobs without opportunities for growth to stable, self-sufficient careers. Their motivation showed every day with a “go get ‘em” attitude that will help them succeed as professionals. After receiving several certifications in the administrative support field, moms are starting job placements with employers including Habitat for Humanity, CASA of Laramie County, and Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. These positions will have a profound impact on their families, from offering more stable work schedules, to providing self-sufficient incomes and benefits that they’ve never had before, including retirement savings for the future.
“Climb helped me better understand my strengths: I’m detail-oriented, punctual, and a problem-solver. With this knowledge and my new job skills, I feel ready for a long-term career that aligns with my values.”
-Ann, Cheyenne Graduate

Everywhere I go in our Cheyenne community, I see amazing and inspiring Climb graduates filling critical jobs in our workforce and making positive changes for their families. Thank you for being part of the success moms are finding in work and life!
