Our Partnership with WORKNOW

The Mayor’s Office of National Western Center partnered with Colorado Resource (CORE) Partners to create a new approach for helping connect workers to high-paying jobs and family support resources. The WORKNOW program empowers individuals and families who live in communities directly affected by city and state economic development projects to continue to serve the needs of their neighborhood through a job in construction. This is the metro area’s first workforce development program that strives to equalize opportunities for all Coloradans by facilitating inclusive, diverse and skilled employment opportunities in construction. WORKNOW programming is concentrated in these key areas:

    • Community Resource Navigation
    • Job Skills Training
    • Job Placement
    • Career Coaching & Advancement
    • Community Building

The WORKNOW program will provide opportunities for people who are interested in exploring a new career, advancing their existing career or finding a career that pays a livable wage by providing:

    • Local training partners to help individuals grow their industry skills
    • Resources to help individuals find and keep a job
    • Construction hiring in craft and office position

Connect to WORKNOW.
