We welcomed Massachusetts Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development, Roslin Acosta, to tour both of our centers. She praised the Young Adult Center and all the potential that it has. We are very excited to welcome the Access to Recovery program to Lowell. This program provides a critical service to job seekers who are in addiction recovery.
We are growing! Three new staff started this summer, and we will add more this fall. Our doors are open to public access on October 4th after serving our customers by appointment only. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming job seekers and employers to our updated Career Center.
And finally, big congratulations to Janet O’Brien and Kathy Dupont for winning this year’s MassHire award for the brand value Respect. They won for the amazing work they have done with our retention program. This is the third year in a row MassHire Lowell Career Center has won a MassHire Award.
