Breaking the cycle of poverty through education and relationship.


Our Employment Success Program is a sixteen-week educational class that provides employment and life skills training. Community Uplift Partnership uses the Jobs for Life curriculum to help students engage in a journey from unemployment or under employment to meaningful employment and increased economic opportunity.

During the classroom sessions, apprentices will learn key life principles from Biblical role models, identify and work through barriers, and learn skills to prepare them for the workplace and for life. Our program teacher and coach will walk the journey with them to encourage, problem solve and guide the participants through the process of increasing their employment opportunity.

To apply the skills participants have learned in the classroom, they will complete a resume, job applications and mock interview to prepare for employment opportunities. One of the opportunities for employment is in the Reunion Coffee House caffeinated by CUP. Other employment opportunities are available with businesses in the Commerce City area, with whom CUP has built relationships.

By the conclusion of the program, the students will have the tools needed to find and retain meaningful employment and engage in a journey that will lead them to a productive life.
