The Jeffco Public Schools Career Links team has been integral in positively shaping conversations with our education partners around the skills and knowledge needed to improve our local talent pipeline leading to sufficient demand, economic mobility and skill alignment for our future workforce. Every year, 6,743 9th graders will start school in Jefferson County and only 25% of those students will complete college. Along with community partners like Jeffco Public Schools Career Links, the Arvada Works program is designed to help individuals find and magnify their true calling to transform their lives and the communities they live in.

Last year, Arvada Works made connections for 750 local students to internships, job shadows, apprenticeships and mentorships. The program has also engaged over 150 local businesses in employer collaboratives and trainings to form a diverse coalition of advocates for advancing the local workforce pipeline. During the dinner, attendees generously raised over $7,500 for Arvada Works. In 2020, the Chamber is committed to providing 1000+ work-based learning experiences for youth and adults, the development of a local matchmaking workforce database and complete a systems gap analysis that will drive improved outcomes for employers and our residents.
