Be Mass Competitive Partnership

The Massachusetts Association of Community Colleges (MACC), in partnership with the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership (MACP), is pleased to announce the “Be Mass Competitive” workforce training initiative.  MACP is a non-profit, non-partisan, 501(c)(4) public policy group comprised of chief executive officers of some of the Commonwealth’s largest businesses. Through this program, candidates will receive specialized training and career-placement services leading to upwardly-mobile employment opportunities at some of the Commonwealth’s largest employers. This program seeks to support and advance the successes of persons of color by providing pathways at MACP companies committed to building a diversified workforce. 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 joint initiative by MACC and MACP employers will include:

  • Up to twelve weeks of training by the Massachusetts Association of Community Colleges at both Bunker Hill Community College and Roxbury Community College at no cost to the student.
