A Collaborative Effort

Through a series of many individual discussions, working groups, and secondary research, The Roadmap aspires to align on the language we use, gather great ideas and examples, and connect with the people and programs we can all learn from to implement high-quality work-based learning in our respective communities and regions across Colorado. This Roadmap has only scratched the surface and we hope you will continue to share and collaborate with us!

A special thanks to the TalentFOUND network for their time and expertise, and for their continued efforts to move this work forward.

We would like to thank the following organizations for the time, energy, feedback, and resources they contributed to make this effort possible, and for the work they do to support work-based learning every day:
