Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, is an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. With the full support of Capital Workforce Partners board and leadership, we will initiate our commitment to generate positive change by recognizing Juneteenth as an official state holiday in 2023.
CWP’s staff, stakeholders, and community members are encouraged to honor this holiday by participating in Juneteenth events, engaging in educational resources, supporting local black-owned businesses and taking the time to reconnect with our community. Here are some events in CT.
This is just the start. We have a long way to go. Recognizing Juneteenth is the beginning of many proactive steps that we will take to build an organization that actively addresses disparities and supports our community – especially in times of need.

Capital Workforce Partners, through the American Job Centers (AJC), continues to serve clients virtually, by phone and in person. In an effort to continue to address the community’s workforce needs, we have set up a “Job Seeker and Employer Help Line” designed to provide potential temporary employment options and support to individuals who may have been dislocated due to COVID-19. This may consist of referring individuals to job opportunities, to community partners and programs, as well as directly to AJC programs working through a virtual model.
All American Job Centers are open to the public. Customers can walk in and get services or call to make an appointment (preferred).
Please call 860-406-3374 press 3 to set up an appointment.
During this public health crisis, do you need help finding a job, changing careers, or getting the training you need to move ahead? Are you an employer needing to find immediate quality talent? There are training scholarships and job placement support available.
