Colorado Resource (CORE) Partners is an alliance of organizations that integrate construction industry job training and community resource partners for comprehensive 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 the construction industry. Simply put, we help people find and keep good jobs. Our collaborative came together because of a shared commitment to ensuring that families living in communities directly affected by construction industry projects benefit from them.
CORE/WORKNOW partners connect 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-paying jobs with robust career growth paths, and a collaborative approach to serving shared customers is central to facilitate upward mobility and wealth building for all.
If you are interested in joining WORKNOW as a resource, grassroots recruitment, or training partner, contact us.

Mile High Youth CorpsMile High Youth Corps Contact: Amber Palmeri
Mile High Youth Corps (MHYC) is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization established in 1992 to give youth ages 16 to 24 a chance to earn an income and learn hands-on job skills while serving in their communities. In its first year, 20 youth served Denver neighborhoods through a single 10-week program. Today, MHYC engages more than 200 youth (called Corps members) every year through several comprehensive programs that integrate paid work experience on community service projects with leadership development, career exploration, and education. During our 26 year history, Mile High Youth Corps has grown from a small, seasonal, neighborhood-based organization to a comprehensive, year-round, regional program serving 22 counties from two regional offices, Metro Denver and the Southern Front Range of Colorado. Our mission is to help youth make a difference in themselves and their community through meaningful service opportunities and educational experiences.
