Our training program is geared toward youth who seek an opportunity to train for an entry level position in light industrial or warehousing facilities. Job candidates will be assigned a counselor and mentor to help them along their path. Upon completion of the program, a job offer will be made to the individual, and they’ll have an opportunity to come back and mentor new candidates, and become known as an “ambassador” of Team Up Academy. Ambassadors will then be eligible to continue their education with our Step Up program, which will allow for opportunities to further their education in the trades. We know that the traditional college path isn’t for everyone and that it’s expensive and time consuming. Our program will make our candidates “job ready” in 30 days. Everyone deserves to set goals, work to reach them, and feel proud of their accomplishments.

So come on out to support Team Up Academy’s mission to teach youth and provide options to help young adults learn valuable skills that support economic growth in the Metro Detroit area. Get your tickets now at Team Up Academy they won’t last!  Upon completion of the transaction, you’ll receive a receipt in your email. 

Every successful worker contributes to their family, their employer, their community, and themselves. Socially responsible individuals serve as role models for others who are feeling lost and unsure about how to get the training that they can put to use immediately and earn a living wage with benefits. Team Up with us and our staff will mentor every step of the way!


Thanks and we’ll see you there! We change lives!™
