MONTE VISTA Rocky Mountain SER Workforce Division continues providing Workforce Services in the San Luis Valley.

The local Community Base Organization continues to provide Workforce Investment Act services in the Valley under the 167 National Farmworker Jobs Program to Agriculture Workers seeking employment and training services.

Rocky Mountain SER is a One Stop Workforce partner and is co-located with the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment (CDLE) at the Monte Vista Workforce Center located at 2079 Sherman Ave. in Monte Vista.

RMSER continues to offer services to those who have an Agriculture work history and are seeking employment and training opportunities locally. The services are free and eligibility can be quickly determined by providing work history information for the past two years.

RMSER services are provided locally by Field Representative, Mayra (Garcia) McKibbon at the local Monte Vista Workforce Center. Mayra has worked for RMSER for over 14 years and has returned to work for the organization in January 2013. She is seeking clients who have an Agriculture background and are interested in training opportunities including

On-the-Job Training, Work Experience, Occupational Training ( Tuition assistance for College courses such as Trinidad State Junior College and or Adams State University). She also works with private training institutions for CDL Truck Driving Licensing and Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA State Board Certified) which could lead to employment in truck driving or CNA positions locally or state wide. Supportive Services to eligible participants who are enrolled include transportation assistance (gas and auto repair), clothing for work or training, tools and equipment for work or training, and other items needed to secure employment.

Rocky Mountain SER works with local employers placing job seekers into activities such as On the Job Training (50% reimbursement for wages paid to new employees hired while in training) and Work Experience (RMSER pays 100% of participants wages while they work for employers as they gain exposure to the working world).
