School to Career
The Workforce Investment Board through a grant from the Department of Education provides staff and support to local schools to place students in internships with local businesses that develop academic and workplace skills through the use of the Massachusetts Work-Based Learning Plan. The Board supports over 900 students a year in jobs and internships through this initiative.
Workers Credit Union opens a new Branch at Monty Tech
The new Branch included 4 student interns that were paid by Workers Credit Union as employees. We had two seniors and two juniors. Both seniors that just graduated just became full-time employees of the credit union while the juniors were relocated to 2 of our branches as part-time help for the summer. This was a win-win situation.
The branch is open to the public when the school is open! Come see us!

Women in Technology
One of the highlights of our School to Career initiative is our Women in Technology program. Each year approximately 25 young women from several schools in the region participate in an internship with Tyco Fire & Safety and Simplex/Grinnell Corporation in Westminster. Students focus on real projects such as product development, internal communication and WEB design.
Each year working with local businesses, community-based organizations and chambers of commerce we place students in summer jobs with work-based learning plans that connect academic achievement and workplace skills.
