"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."
– Shawan, Alumni Award Winner 1998 & former CWEE staff member for 13 years
"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."
– Taryn Lewis,
Board of Directors

CWEE has been a wonderful and positive experience for me. I’ve updated my skills and am preparing to re-enter the workforce. It has revived my self-worth.
– Rochelle, CWEE Participant

We hope you will join us for a celebration of the remarkable transformation and personal empowerment that CWEE helps bring about in the lives of low-income families in our community! CWEE is thrilled to honor our alumni at Harvesting Opportunities this year. CWEE Alumni Ambassadors will be seated at each sponsored table to share their CWEE experiences and help guests understand the positive and transformative impact of CWEE.
Denver native Simone Ross will be the emcee for Harvesting Opportunities. Guests will enjoy harvest-themed food stations, live music by Odessa Rose, a wine pull, and a live auction.
All proceeds from Harvesting Opportunities provide skills training, career coaching, and confidence building for low-income parents who, once employed, generate over $6 million in wages that help power Denver's economy.
