Board and Committee Membership
"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 would like to highlight one of its newest volunteers, Marion Mobley. Marion began volunteering with The Learning Source and CWEE in 2017, as a tutor within the high school equivalency program. With a background in computer programming, he’s also lent his expertise to participants completing their digital literacy certificates in Phase II of the program. A native of Atlanta, Marion’s love of travel has taken him all over the world, including Botswana, where he served in the Peace Corps. Marion and his wife enjoy traveling and taking advantage of all the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. When he’s not tutoring, you may find him riding his bike across the country, or skydiving (he’s completed over 800 jumps!!). Thanks, Marion, for all your support of CWEE’s participants!
Career Exploration Tour
Hyatt Regency Denver
CWEE staff and participants had the opportunity to explore careers in the hospitality industry thanks to our partner, Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. Participants and members of CWEE’s employment services team enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of the Hyatt and learned about the various positions that exist to not only be one of Denver’s popular destinations for both locals and visitors, but also one of Fortune 100’s Best Companies to Work for in 2017. Attendees also had a private Q & A session with key members of Hyatt’s team who shared their career paths, why they enjoy being a part of the culture at Hyatt and insider information on Hyatt’s application process. Thanks to partners like Hyatt, CWEE is able to provide career seekers opportunities to explore career options that help guide their decisions in choosing their next step towards their career path.
CWEE offers a variety of opportunities for individuals and companies to support Colorado’s workforce. Below are ways you can get involved individually or bring a team to help CWEE.
