CORPORATE SOCIAL JUSTICE
SkillsCamp is a social impact organization built on a social justice framework. We have only known one way: do well by doing good, and then help others be well too.
We’re not just talk. From the beginning in 2016, SkillCamp has collaborated with various non-profits and community organizations to offer skills development to priority communities at no or extremely low cost. Beyond time and energy, we donate funds to various social initiatives as well such as those concerning social inequity and injustices.
Beyond our driving mission, which is of course that people need soft skills for personal and professional success, other issues we are primarily focused on are:
- Access to, and improved, education opportunities for all
- Digital wellbeing & safety for all, but especially youth
- Empowerment & entrepreneurship in underrepresented communities
SkillsCamp is committed to #SafeSocial.
Our partnership to ensure everyone has digital wellbeing.
