We are focused on developing a skilled workforce who is prepared to drive economic growth in the Maine communities that Skowhegan Savings Bank serves. Through partnering with businesses, non-profit organizations, local government leaders, and educational programs we are committed to equipping workers with good paying jobs that bring value to local businesses and our communities.
Trade & Technical Training
With an aging workforce and high demand, Maine needs more men and women to enter a rewarding trade or technical career.
Technological advancements have changed how we work. We must equip our workforce to be leaders in cutting-edge technical applications.
“The Skowhegan Savings Foundation's generous gift to the Madison Welding Center will help us train hundreds of welders to come and meet a much needed demand from local businesses."

Skowhegan Savings has pledged $250,000 towards the Skowhegan Early Learning Center
The $4.5 million dollar project is scheduled to open in 2025. The early childhood wing will be directly connected to the new elementary school on Heselton Street and will use the philosophies of Educare Central Maine, in partnership with Kennebec Valley Community Action Program and MSAD54, in offering childcare and pre-kindergarten education for 160 students ages infant to 11 years old. This new facility will not only help lay the foundation for tomorrow’s workforce, but will also help provide childcare for parents looking to re-enter today’s workforce.
