Shift_Up is a community for those who strive to be their best and who welcome the challenge of growth.

Shift_Up is Detroit’s Learning Gym. We blend the best online resources and in-person support to offer effective and affordable solutions to upgrade your skills.


Today you can learn almost anything you want for free on the internet.

But learning alone is hard.

“learning gym” (n):

A physical community for online learning


Here, you won’t find a one-size-fits-all lecture hall.

Why would we do that? With the internet, the world is at your fingertips—and you can learn at your own pace.

What you need is a little help from your friends.

We help you:

  • Stay motivated with a community of peers

  • Get unstuck quickly with the help of live coaches

  • Save time with paths of curated learning resources

  • Be more focused in our dedicated learning space

We help you learn in-demand digital skills, including but not limited to:

  • Software development

    • Web development (JavaScript, Java, Python, and associated frameworks and libraries)

    • Mobile development (iOS, Android)

    • Game development (Unity, Unreal Engine)

  • Data science, including Tableau

  • UI/UX

  • Cybersecurity

  • Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure

  • Salesforce

  • Microsoft Excel & Office

  • Adobe Creative Cloud

  • Digital / social media marketing

  • Squarespace

  • Wordpress

  • SEO

We invite you to try.

I signed up to learn a skill, but I found myself staying for the experience. The Shift_Up community is powerful — you won’t find that everywhere.
