General Information
Description of ServiceThe Strengthening Working Families Initiative grant (SWFI), in partnership with the US Department of Labor, allows the Community College of Aurora and Community College of Denver to help parents obtain certificates and access jobs in high-demand, high-growing career pathways in healthcare, information technology, and advance manufacturing. It also helps parents overcome child care, academic, and financial barriers. The grant coordinates services across multiple partners to help strengthen working families who want to attend college. Bridge support is also available through the grant (for those who need academic assistance prior to enrollment into certificate programs).

Upon receiving a certificate, the program assists parents with job preparation and placement.
