The School to Work Alliance Program (SWAP) was developed in 1994 as a means to meet the vocational needs of individuals in Colorado who may have barriers to employment. SWAP is a collaborative program between the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and local school districts. These agencies work together to identify the need to local employers and match them with SWAP clients. Additionally, SWAP offers job training skills and job coaching to youth. SWAP originally began with eight site but has since grown to 45 sites which serve 138 school districts and over 3,000 youth each year.
