Arapahoe/Douglas Works! was presented with the prestigious Mark Sanders Award from the National Association of State Workforce Agencies at the 2022 Veterans Conference in Washington, D.C.
The Mark Sanders Award is bestowed each year upon one individual or group in the U.S. that provides exceptional workforce and/or job market assistance to Veterans, especially those with significant barriers to obtaining and retaining employment.
“We are honored to serve those who have served and support them in discovering career pathways,” said Sasha Easton, Division Manager of Arapahoe/Douglas Works! Workforce Center. “We strive to meet every veteran where they are today—to triage immediate needs, to walk beside them at a pace that makes sense for them and to create a personalized plan to achieve their employment goals.”
