New workforce center opens in downtown Denver

This center will be a location for jobseekers and employers to tap into free services.

DENVER — A new center in downtown Denver is open to provide free services to jobseekers and employers.

Denver Workforce Services opened a new Workforce Center on Wednesday on the ground floor of the Wellington Webb office building at 201 W. Colfax Ave.

The center is free and open to the public, with job coaches, education specialists and career pathway navigators for youth and adults. Denver Workforce Services also offers free workshops regarding job searches, resume writing, interview preparation, and career pathways.

The new downtown center will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Denver also operates a workforce center in Montbello at 4685 Peoria St.

A third, newly remodeled workforce center is scheduled to open at Denver International Airport this spring.

Access to services is also available by calling 720-337-9675 or workforce@denvergov.org.

“Listening to people who are out of work or needing help to improve their career opportunities and supporting them gain the tools and confidence they need to succeed – that’s where Denver Workforce Services shines as one of the most critical services we can provide to our residents,” Mayor Michael Hancock said. 

“Out of the pandemic and economic aftermath, a true bright light and source of pride for Denver has been the vibrancy of our public workforce system and the support they’ve provided to help lift our residents up," Hancock said. "We want our community to know this resource exists and that it’s expanding to help more people.”

In its most recent program year, Denver Workforce Services worked with a total of 17,781 jobseekers and 1,646 businesses.
