Colorado Resource Partners (CORE) is an alliance of organizations that integrates training and community resource partners for overall construction workforce readiness and career success. What’s different about this approach is that we’re working together in a new way.
CORE presents the employment platform, WORKNOW to place, retain and advance workers in this industry. Simply put, we help people find and keep good construction jobs. Our collaborative came together because of a shared commitment to ensuring that families living in communities directly affected by construction projects benefit from them.
CORE partners include:
- Center for Workforce Initiatives at Community College of Denver
- Colorado Homebuilding Academy
- Construction Careers Now
- Denver Area Labor Federation
- Denver Housing Authority
- Denver Workforce Services / Denver Office of Economic Development
- Focus Points Family Resource Center
- Mi Casa Resource Center
- WorkLife Partnership
CORE/WORKNOW partners connect to over 15 local technical training programs including community and technical colleges, trade associations and registered apprenticeship programs.
Our partnership platform (WORKNOW) builds individual, and organizational effectiveness as well as a collective capacity to serve you and metro Denver families. We base our work on three assumptions–good jobs drive positive impacts for workers and communities, the construction industry provides access to high-wage, high-growth jobs with robust career paths, and a collaborative approach to serving shared customers is central to facilitate upward mobility and wealth building for all.
