CareerWise Colorado’s mission is to create opportunities for youth and businesses across Colorado by developing and supporting an innovative, sustainable youth apprenticeship program.
Through this business-led, student-centered model, CareerWise Colorado brings together public and private stakeholders to ensure that students have access to the skills and knowledge they need for financial and academic success, and that businesses have access to highly-trained talent.
CareerWise Colorado connects education and industry through a state-wide modern youth apprenticeship. Industry has worked with us to identify hard-to-fill positions and create competency-based work plans for apprentices to develop the skills necessary to thrive in the workforce. CareerWise pathways lead to jobs that start with a middle-class salary.
