DENVER, Colo. — The Adolph Coors Foundation is investing in Colorado’s future workforce by supporting Goodwill Industries of Denver’s youth career development programming. The $15,000 grant will support Goodwill’s impact on nearly 13,000 disadvantaged students at high-poverty middle and high schools across the Denver metro area.
“Goodwill Industries of Denver continues to provide valuable workforce development programs for metro-area youth, which is one reason our foundation has supported the program for nearly four decades” said Alejandra Major, program officer of the Adolph Coors Foundation.
Goodwill Industries of Denver serves more than 23,000 Coloradans in need annually. Its community programs help some of the most disadvantaged individuals in the community overcome various barriers to employment. Goodwill’s youth career development programs deliver instruction with an emphasis on real-world experience and learning. The career-readiness curriculum includes one-on-one mentoring, resume writing workshops, career panels, mock interviews, post-secondary success counseling as well as college and work site visits.
“We are so grateful to have the continued support of an organization with such a strong legacy in Colorado,” said Karla Grazier, Interim President and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Denver. “We wouldn’t be able to make an impact on the lives of so many students year after year without the commitment Coors has shown us.” The Adolph Coors Foundation has been a supporter of Goodwill Denver since 1979.
