Colorado Resource Partners (CORE) is an alliance of organizations that integrates training and community resource partners for overall construction workforce readiness and career success. What’s different about this approach is that we’re working together in a new way.

CORE presents the employment platform, WORKNOW to place, retain and advance workers in this industry. Simply put, we help people find and keep good construction jobs. Our collaborative came together because of a shared commitment to ensuring that families living in communities directly affected by construction projects benefit from them.
