Ribbon cutting celebrates new Denver Workforce Center at Montbello

Center provides staffing and training assistance, benefiting job seekers and businesses
Businesses and residents in northeast Denver and throughout the city have an improved resource for employment and training solutions — the Denver Workforce Center at Montbello. Mayor Michael B. Hancock, City Council members and other officials today celebrated the recent expansion of the center during a ribbon cutting celebration and open house.


Located in the Arie P. Taylor Municipal Building, 4685 Peoria St., Suite 251, the Denver Workforce Center at Montbello is one of four Colorado Workforce Centers open in the City and County of Denver. The center opened in fall 2010 and recently underwent a major expansion to become one of the City’s leading workforce centers.


“The expanded center enhances our city’s ability to provide Denver businesses with better access to a trained workforce while boosting job search services for our residents,” said Hancock.


The center includes a resource room, providing job seekers with access to computers, photocopiers, phones and fax machines. A variety of computer and job search classes are offered through the center’s two computer-equipped classrooms.


Offered through the Denver Office of Economic Development, the Denver Workforce Centers serve as one-stop career centers to meet the recruiting and training needs of businesses, job seekers and youth throughout the metro area. Services include access to job search tools and job listings, resume and cover letter assistance, computer training, intensive job search (subsidized employment, on-the-job training, professional internships), employment certification, career assessments, and occupational skills training for eligible residents.
