The Pikes Peak Workforce Center connects vital businesses with work-ready job seekers and employer-driven services. We help residents of El Paso and Teller Counties with career transition, whether they are unemployed, underemployed, or employed.
Serving Employers, Adults and Youth.
Our Business Consultants can help you solve your most challenging workforce problems. PPWFC adult programs are aimed at improving the employability of job seekers. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) was created to help adults who lack marketable job skills gain the necessary skills to find and keep employment. All adults who create an account with Connecting Colorado, may use the PPWFC Resource Room which offers free, self-service tools and information helpful in career planning and job searching.
The Resource Room provides computers with Internet access, printers, a facsimile machine, phones and a copy machine to help job seekers find and apply for jobs. Other free services for all job seekers include workshops on a wide variety of job search topics.
The PPWFC Youth Zone programs target youth, 17 to 21, who are having trouble achieving academic or employment success. Out-of-school youth who may not have completed their diploma requirements can find help getting their GED or getting back into school. If eligible, youth may receive help with career assessments, tutoring and study skills, tuition assistance, leadership training, mentoring, occupational training, apprenticeships and more.
All local youth, 16 through 21, may participate in the Governor’s Summer Job Hunt program, a free summer job referral service and are welcome to attend workshops on job search skills.
