CWEE’s program operates as an integrated education and employment program that includes comprehensive services to help individuals sustain employment long-term. CWEE’s instructors focus on retaining participants and advancing them from one phase to the next. A participants’ journey at CWEE begins with a referral to CWEE from Denver and Arapahoe County, or a community partner, to attend CWEE’s on-going Career Readiness Program, Monday-Thursday from 9am-4pm with the objective that after 3-6 months they will become employed.
"CWEE has helped me build my self-esteem. I feel worthy and inspired to do something positive everyday. Because of my wonderful experience at CWEE, I’m able to share it with others."

"I sit on many boards and councils but the endeavor that I am most passionate about is sitting on the Board of Directors for the Center for Work Education and Employment (CWEE). CWEE helps individuals receiving TANF get the education and skills necessary to obtain viable employment putting them in a position to eventually transition off of public assistance and hopefully out of poverty."

Former Board of Directors
