Who We Are?
Wisdom to Believe: Community Workforce Advocates
Wisdom to BELIEVE is a non-profit organization that focuses on workforce development, educational gaps, and regional economic development challenges. Our goal is to address the current and long term priorities of the business community as it relates to skilled labor. We provide specific programs aimed at developing skills in leadership, workforce development, education (STEM), and other advanced technology areas based on the demands of our business community. Our program addresses the employment needs of the unemployed and underemployed individuals seeking immediate career assistance as well as preparing our future employable scholars for careers through our K-12 programs. Furthermore, our particular focus targets the diverse populations within these communities.
Through partnerships with numerous business, education, civic and other non-profit organizations, we assist individuals in achieving their career and leadership goals. Together we facilitate, coordinate and guide each recipient through our model, better known as “BELIEVE” (Business Skills, Education, Life Skills, Inspiration, Experience, Vocation, Employment). This comprehensive and multi-phased approach allows us to deliver fully developed and capable talent, who are able to address the challenges of the 21st century marketplace.
Although we have only been in existence since 2013, we have successfully served hundreds of recipients through various initiatives such as career development seminars, resume development and interviewing skills programs, youth leadership programs, and industry specific networking events.
Wisdom to BELIEVE services will help you to obtain and learn the successful methods to achieve personal and professional success. We accomplish this by identifying your individual career goals and assessing your current business, education and social skills gaps. We can then develop a plan for success that will assist you with achieving your future endeavors.

If it wasn’t for Wisdom to BELIEVE’s dedication and commitment to see me succeed, I doubt I would be where I am now. He helped me open so many doors, and I will be forever grateful.
I credit Wisdom to BELIEVE’s coaching with helping me to be prepared to speak confidently about the depth of my experience and value I would add to the business when engaging with potential employers. I am happy to say I am starting my dream job!
Because of Wisdom to BELIEVE, I was able to obtain an internship at Honda Motor Company.
