JCBEA is a collaborative partnership of businesses, chambers of commerce, education and community organizations created from one common mission of connecting business and education to create an outstanding workforce for today and tomorrow.
JCBEA seeks to develop new career and workforce readiness opportunities for students of Jeffco Public Schools, Colorado’s second largest school district, Red Rocks Community College, and other educational institutions by engaging employers and business leaders in career and technical education for youth and more. Engaging students and businesses in the workforce readiness of our youth is truly an investment in Jefferson County’s economy, and serves to diversify the future leaders of our community.

The Lamar Street Center is an incredible venue, and we will have a couple food trucks there along with a live band – the Duke Street Kings – and a cash bar. Also, folks are encouraged to set up a table to sell their products or services. Those tables are free with just a $50 donation to JCBEA. So please help us get the word out.
