Colorado Child Welfare Training System

Specialized Learning & Development Experiences

For Child Welfare Professionals and Caregivers

Committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion
for our learning community and
the children, youth, and families they serve.

In 2013, the Colorado Department of Human Services selected the Kempe Center to serve as the central management organization for Colorado’s Child Welfare Training System (CWTS). Since that time, CWTS has demonstrated success working toward its mission to meet the learning and professional development needs of Colorado’s caseworkers, supervisors, case aides, resource caregivers, and other child-and-family-serving professionals. Through an array of dynamic learning experiences, coaching, resource sharing, and community building, CWTS is supporting a diverse and ever-changing workforce.
