Mass Nonprofit News posts an article on the Champion in Action award we received from Citizen’s Bank and NECN here.
“Tech Foundry, a Springfield nonprofit that partners with area employers to identify information technology skills that can be taught to local students, has received a $35,000 grant and promotional and volunteer aid to support its ongoing mission.”
MassLive created an article on the story as well, here.
“Tech Foundry has made an enormous impact in our state and in the lives of students, taking young adults with minimal IT experience and giving them the specific skills and training they need to succeed in an entry level position. By making a commitment to a passionate, results-focused group like Tech Foundry as our next Champion in Action, we are making an unequivocal investment in the next generation of Massachusetts thinkers and workers.”
We receive a feature from WWLP 22 News on the grant, here.
“They leave graduation knowing their future is brighter, because they were here at Tech Foundry and because of the partnerships and collaboration that Tech Foundry has formed to make the future of these students a reality.”
NECN has coverage of the event also, here.
“It’s a noble mission: train people to get a job, help them find one and then make sure they know how to keep it. It sounds simple, but it’s not as easy. This is why necn and Citizen’s Bank chose Tech Foundry as our next Champions in Action.”
Business West posts a story on this, here.
“More than 50 workforce-development stakeholders and Tech Foundry employer partners gathered last week at an event at Tech Foundry to share the news. The organization sees this award as not just affirmation for its program success, but also an award to the collaborative efforts of companies across the region.”
