Go2Work Programs (Sponsored Programs)
Employment Preparation and Job Training
The Go2Work Programs meet the needs of our community for preparation for employment and job training. The program is made possible through partnerships between Colorado Mountain College and the Colorado Work Force, Garfield, Eagle and Pitkin Counties, and other government, private and nonprofit entities.
Go2Work Computer Job Skills Workshops are ongoing, weekly workshops offered in Rifle, Carbondale, Basalt and Aspen. They offer free instruction from basic computers, Microsoft Office, graphic design and web design. These are offered in conjunction with the CO Workforce Centers and County Health and Human Services. They are open to anyone in the community; those currently in the workforce; those considering college and wanting to update their computer skills; even local seniors wanting to increase their basic computer skills and access social media.
Gateway-Link to Success Classes are offered at the Rifle campus. These classes are designed for parents who qualify for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits through the Garfield County Department of Human Services. For information about eligibility for TANF, please go to Colorado PEAK or your local County Human Services office.
Wo/Men In Transition Scholarships can help with the cost of tuition and books for parents meeting certain eligibility requirements. The scholarship is limited to areas where funding is provided through local grants and contracts.
GarCo Enterprise (formerly known as GarCo Sewing Works) is an industrial sewing training, sustainability and design center located in downtown Rifle. In partnership with Garfield County, GarCo Enterprise is an economic development project. The center offers training in sewing, design, marketing, entrepreneurship and small business development to individuals on public benefits and displaced workers referred by the local workforce center. We work closely with CMC students interested in career pathways to local training opportunities and certificates of proficiency that local employers have identified as employment needs.
