July 13, 2020 - The Colorado Workforce Development Council is pleased to announce grant awards to four communities committed to implementing the Thriving Work-based Learning Community model. These capacity-building grants will provide financial support to enable collaboration across business, workforce development, education, and economic development. 

With these funds, communities will leverage work-based learning strategies to stabilize and scale high-quality training opportunities to address local workforce challenges. The grantees will participate in a year-long Work-based Learning Lab community of practice to share solutions to common work-based learning challenges and accelerate their work-based learning initiatives.
