Our Mission To Build A Stronger Community

CentreWorks serves as a catalyst to stimulate the recovery, establish resilience, and enable growth of Kentucky’s famed Bluegrass region. Our programming, available to the entire region, has been custom-designed to provide collaboration, ideation, education, mentoring, skills enhancement, and investment opportunities. At CentreWorks we understand the value of including all perspectives and welcome all people regardless of ability, age, background, ethnicity, race, faith, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation. CentreWorks acts to bridge gaps that exist within our greater community through providing a physical and virtual space where individuals can connect and proudly take ownership in their dedication to community engagement, growth, and collaboration. Utilizing empathy, collaboration, and inclusion to address complex civic problems, CentreWorks challenges the community to employ the human-centered approach and the entrepreneurial mindset. CentreWorks accomplishes this through the practice and hands-on learning of the entrepreneurial mindset. That mindset includes empathy, curiosity, comfort with risk, growth through failures, resilience, grit, and perseverance.
