We're Here to Help!

Our youth services mission is to offer a caring environment where you can get exposure to tomorrow's sustainable careers and stackable credentials. We can help you get a job--but we can also help with so much more than just "a paycheck." Through listening and coaching, and along with a range of supportive services, we are ready to help you experience that economic mobility can be so much more: a career, a future, a world of opportunity.

Our asset-based approach means that we help you explore your interests, talents and strengths--not focusing on your barriers or where you might fall short according to someone else's definition of success. With emphasis on training, education and attainable goals, we believe that you'll find that Denver Workforce Services and our contractor partners offer a true way forward.



Each year the Governor’s Summer Job Hunt provides a vital link between classroom learning and on-the-job experience by matching young people eager to work with great summer employment opportunities. Open to young adults age 16 to 21, this statewide program provides a referral service to connect job seekers with employers. Economic circumstances are not a consideration for program registrants.
