CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT GPS Education Partners (GPS) Launched in 2000, GPS is a nonprofit organization and the only manufacturing-specific, statewide Department of Workforce Development Youth Apprenticeship Program in Wisconsin. It provides students with immersive youth apprenticeships that lead to accelerated careers in the technical industry. By being the community connector that bridges the gap in academic achievement, life skills development, and technical career preparation, GPS has become the leader in work-based learning. GPS Advances a Professional Development Program with Blackbaud University In an effort to keep up with the demands of serving many students, GPS uses a variety of Blackbaud solutions. To train staff in those solutions, the organization uses a Blackbaud University Learn subscription. Very quickly, GPS realized the tough challenge ahead of transforming student prep for technical careers, refilling the talent pool for manufacturers, and supporting local communities. The way the organization planned to combat this challenge was through exponential growth in their enrollment, hiring, and fundraising.
