Information about the Ready to Work employment program in Colorado.

Ready to Work offers individuals a stepping stone to full-time employment. We are a work-based program up to 29 hours a week of paid, transitional employment in the Boulder area.  Trainees are paid $8.23 an hour and may be eligible to live in the newly renovated Ready to Work Housing and Employment Center for a year.  All interns will be assisted with their living situation during the internship. In addition to working Monday through Friday, as well as some weekends, program trainees are supported by case management providing support with financial management, job readiness, housing, support services and more.

To be eligible, potential participants must be looking for a pathway out of homelessness, want to achieve full-time employment, and stable housing within 9 to12 months of joining Ready to Work. Interested individuals must complete an application and agree to all terms and conditions of the program including committing up to 29 hours a week of work, saving 1/3 of their income, and staying clean and sober.  Ready to Work staff will conduct intake interviews and will maintain a waiting list for Ready to Work.  Participants accepted into Ready to Work will first participate in an unpaid, volunteer internship that can last from one to four weeks, consisting of volunteer duties at the Bridge House and or other Ready to Work assignment.  Transportation assistance will be provided.  Upon successful completion of the internship, participants will begin working on the Ready to Work crew, as a paid trainee, for up to 29 hours a week.  In addition to work, trainees will be required to meet with a case manager, attend caseload meetings, participate in financial management, employment and life skills classes for up to 5 additional unpaid hours per week.

 To retain your position in Ready To Work, participants must agree to and comply with all program expectations.  Ready to Work is voluntary and should not be considered permanent employment with Bridge House.  As a part of the program, the option of living in the Ready to Work House is available for trainees.  Applications to live in the house are completed with your case manager, and dependent on meeting the requirements.
