Creating an Account in Connecting Colorado
To access resources, services, and training opportunities at the Youth Zone, you must first create an account in the state job database, Connecting Colorado.
You will not be able to use our services unless you create an account. If you have a computer with high-speed connection, you can create an account from home. If not, you can create your account at our main office, 1675 Garden of the Gods Road, Suite 1107, Colorado Springs, CO 80907, or at our offices in Cripple Creek, Divide, Fountain, Woodland Park, or Monument.
After creating your account, you will receive a scan card that allows you access to our facilities. If you create your account from home, when you come to the office tell the receptionist that you are registered and she or he will give you a scan card.
To create an account as a New Job Seeker
, you will need:
1. Your social security number;
