Burlington Workforce Center Announces New Hours of Operation

One day closure each month will make service delivery available to Cheyenne Wells

The Burlington Workforce Center has modified its hours of operation to accommodate an outreach effort to Cheyenne County.

The office at 420 South 14th Street, Suite B, in Burlington (phone: 719-346-5331) will be closed on the second Friday of each month so that staff can provide services at the Cheyenne County Social Services Building, 51 South 1st Street in Cheyenne Wells (phone: 719-767-5629).  Hours of operation on the second Friday of each month in Cheyenne Wells will be 9 AM to 4 PM with an hour closure at 12 Noon for lunch.

With offices across Colorado, Workforce Centers meet the needs of local employers, offering the largest pool of available workers in the state.  For job seekers, these offices provide a wide selection of education and training, job counseling, career exploration and more.

Getting those services to Cheyenne Wells is an important outreach effort, says Eastern Workforce Center Director Dawn Garcia.  “The outreach gives us an opportunity to address that community’s workforce needs but I want to assure the businesses and the citizens of Burlington that our staff and the vital local services they deliver will continue.  This essential part of the community is not disappearing.”
