Be Mass Competitive Partnership

The Massachusetts Association of Community Colleges (MACC), is proud to continue our “Be Mass Competitive” workforce training initiative. Through this program, candidates will receive specialized training and career-placement services leading to upwardly-mobile employment opportunities. This opportunity is available at no cost to participants and stipends will be provided. Individuals with a high school diploma/equivalency or higher are eligible and encouraged to apply.

This Spring, MACC is pleased to announce our continued partnership with the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership (MACP).
