Denver Mayor Celebrates Success of Youth Workforce Initiative

This summer, nearly 300 DPS high school students are working in cutting-edge industries across the city and county of Denver. Students are performing real work in more than 100 companies, including Xcel Energy, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Home Advisor as part of the DPS CareerLaunch Internship Program. The initiative connects students with businesses for internships while also cultivating a highly-trained and diverse workforce for Denver companies. Interns have built websites, helped deliver babies, visited construction sites, created mobile apps and more.

On Friday, July 21, DPS will recognize interns and company partners at the CareerLaunch internship celebration. Students will present their internship projects during an interactive showcase from 3-4 p.m., followed by a brief awards ceremony. Mayor Michael B. Hancock will congratulate the 300 interns and present one student with the prestigious “CareerLaunch Intern of the Year Award.” Additional speakers include the following:

  • Tom Boasberg, Superintendent, Denver Public Schools
  • Steve Jaquith, Managing Director, United Airlines Denver Hub
  • Chris Jensen, Region Manager for the Commercial Bank in Colorado, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
  • Andrea Young, CEO, Colorado Technology Association

One of the five goals in the district’s strategic plan — the Denver Plan 2020 — is to ensure students graduate college- and career-ready and are prepared for their futures. DPS provides a variety of supports and services for students and their families, not just on their path to graduation, but to ensure their success in a globally-connected, knowledge-based economy.

Hear from the students about how the internships have changed their lives and career prospects. Learn why companies are using the CareerLaunch Internship Program to meet their talent pipeline needs.

The CareerLaunch Internship Program is part of DPS CareerConnect, an initiative aimed at building a highly-skilled workforce equipped to meet the changing demands of Colorado’s high-growth industries. More than 18,000 students participate in DPS CareerConnect, part of the DPS Office of Postsecondary Readiness, and more than 500 students will complete CareerLaunch internships throughout the 2017-18 school year.
