The W.K. Kellogg Foundation values people and communities. Fostering solution-oriented discussion among workers, community members, and policymakers through the Working Group's Livelyhood program, gives extraordinary, ordinary working people the opportunity to adapt their lives and communities to the rapidly changing work environment.



The UAW-DaimlerChrysler National Training Center has been a pioneer in efforts to build the workplace of the future through continuous education. Jointly operated by the United Auto Workers and DaimlerChrysler, the NTC oversees 30 programs that hone job skills, empower workers, promote product quality and enhance the lives of UAW members and their families. The UAW-DaimlerChrysler Child Development Center in Huntsville, Ala. is a national model that provides quality care and educational programs for children of workers at DaimlerChrysler’s nearby electronics plant. Training programs are offered at the NTC, five regional centers and 52 DaimlerChrysler facilities around the country. The NTC’s Technology Training Center in Detroit is providing a new generation of workers with the technical skills they’ll need in the next century.

The National Training Center is proud to sponsor Livelyhood in honor of American workers. Telling their stories enriches our lives and provides a mirror into the dynamic world of work and fabric of our society. We salute their accomplishments, values and ability to adapt to an ever-changing global economy.
