GOVERNOR’S COACHING CORPS – a partnership of Skillful and the state of Colorado – is an intensive, eight-month program that recognizes the vital role career coaches play bridging the gap between jobseekers and employers, supporting economic growth across the state, and guiding professional advancement for thousands of Coloradans.

The Governor’s Coaching Corps gives coaches the tools and training they need to better serve jobseekers in our rapidly changing labor market and to invest in their own personal and professional development. At the end of the program in June, the coaches will recommend new practices and approaches to state policymakers for adoption.

The inaugural Governor’s Coaching Corps launched on October 26, 2017. Our exceptional coaches hail from workforce centers, community colleges, high schools, and nonprofit organizations from across the state.
