In 2020, Bright Futures launched the Futures Centers powered by Bright Futures inside two Weld County High Schools: Fort Lupton and Valley. The Futures Centers are a Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) funded program that focuses on career-exploration, post-secondary preparedness, and more. Our Bright Futures mission is to introduce Weld County students to the workforce and get them excited about a career and life after high school. The Future Centers focus on the skills and knowledge needed to obtain a job and future career by obtaining a degree or certification. The program also aligns students with Weld County industry partners, the WBL Alliance, and others to help students get a job, if desired, straight out of high school.
Also, in 2020, Bright Futures launched the early stages of the Careers in Healthcare Program. The program aligns with high school graduates who want to pursue a certification or 2-year degree in the healthcare industry: CNA, EMT, MA, etc.
