BUILDING A STRONG COMMUNITY AND ECONOMY 

The Construction Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to construction industry workforce development in Colorado. The Foundation has awarded tens of thousands of scholarship dollars to education and community based programs since 2002. 

MISSION 

Our mission is to recruit, develop, and serve students of the construction industry by promoting innovative educational pathways to rewarding careers in an inclusive, highly-skilled and prosperous construction workforce. 

PARTNERSHIPS AND PASSION

CEF is supported by like-minded individuals, businesses, and organizations in the public and private sector who share our passion to help change lives for the better through education and workforce development programs. The work we do together provides opportunities for Colorado residents to learn valuable skills and create lifelong careers resulting in a stronger community and economy for everyone. 

DIVERSITY 

Diversity is very important to us. The Construction Education Foundation is very focused on making sure that our programs offer opportunities for education and eventual career employment (the end game) for all ethnicities and genders. We collaborate, partner and utilize insights provided to us from associations and organizations that have strong relationships within our diverse community including the Hispanic Contractors of Colorado (HCC), Black Chamber, Hispanic Chamber, City and County of Denver’s CEI committee, Colorado Contractors Association (CCA), CORE/WORKNOW and the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO).
