Capital Workforce Partners is the Workforce Development Board for North Central Connecticut.

Through a structured, tiered approach to “learning and working,” we provide internships throughout the year and during our Summer Employment Program for High School students. With this model our students are better equipped to be successful in post-secondary education and career.

Our program works in 4 tiers:

TIER I Project based learning and career exploration
Career exposure activities and introduction competency development and team building (youth ages 14-16)

TIER II Simulated Work Environments and Career Exploration
Continuation of competency development. Youth participate in a simulated work environment and job shadowing and/or sector-related field trips. (youth ages 14-17)

TIER III Enhanced Employability Skills Training and Employment
Youth participate in subsidized internships preceded by competency development, and accompanied by supervision of both worksite, teacher and program coordinator. (youth ages 16-24)

TIER IV Career Connections
Through help from a school-based career coordinator, youths receive mentoring, job readiness workshops, learn how to conduct a job search and secure unsubsidized private sector employment. (youth 17+)

Number of Students in the program:  1,600-2,400 across the Greater Hartford/North Central area
