Who We Serve

Over four decades, CWEE has developed an employment training curriculum and network of support services to help our career seekers overcome barriers, build confidence within a supportive community, and succeed in long-term employment.

CWEE’s approach to workforce development focuses on workers with limited traditional experience and education, supporting them to leverage their existing skills, gain new ones, and develop the confidence and life skills they need to find quality employment, support their families, and contribute to the community.
