COVID-19 Response

EWD inCompass logo

Find your path. Education & employment are everything, but not everyone is equal when it comes to how & when these are achieved.

The Larimer County CareerRise team supports a variety of customized services for those, ages 16-24, who are facing financial and/or other obstacles.

Paired with a Career Specialist, you will design a career plan to support services that could include:

  • Intensive career guidance & employment support
  • Financial support & training for those obtaining a HSE/GED
  • Paid internships
  • Transition support after high school
  • Tuition support for additional training & education

The inCompass program is funded through the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA).
