Pikes Peak Workforce Center Young Adult Job Fair:
“We thoroughly enjoying hosting our annual Pikes Peak Workforce Center Young Adult Job Fair in April 2022 at the Colorado Springs Community Cultural Collective! We had more than 50 employers there, with recruiters and managers, ready to hire. And nearly 100 young adults attended, who were looking for their summer jobs or to start their career paths. The venue is easy to access, especially for loading and unloading equipment, and we appreciated the flexible layout for booths. We had a wonderful rapport with Lauren Martinez, who was onsite for our entire event–this has become one of our favorite places to host a mid-size job fair/event. Can’t wait to come back!”

Simple Gift Series, Music and Literacy Enrichment Program:
Joint Initiatives hosted their childcare advocacy appreciation event at the City Aud on April 30. 50 early childhood educators and center leaders embarked on a training program that was inspiring, engaging and empowering. Powerful feedback from the participants was shared with the creative team at Simple Gift Series:
“I ordered the scarves and the shaker eggs and the bells right away. The kids love them! I needed renewal. I needed that class. I needed to be reminded to focus on the simple things and to be me. To find me again… and that I can do this. It is helping me find my creativity again. I’m not there but I’m getting there. God knew I needed that class. For me.”
“I have used the books and songs in class as we follow along with the program. The kids make all the connections. The website is great and full of resources. So glad to have this creative resource for my class and for my soul.”
The Simple Gift Series, the PBS music and literacy enrichment program is a television show created by Linda Weise along with a profound team of creatives. It is part of the early childhood learning experience at the Colorado Springs Conservatory; we are proud to be able to bring this training program to educators across the state and nation.
