Blackstone Valley Education Foundation Awarded $55,000 Manufacturing Grant

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

 

Housing and Economic Development Secretary recently met with students and faculty at Blackstone Valley Technical High School in Worcester to discuss the growing needs and challenges of the manufacturing workforce in the Blackstone Valley region.

During his visit, Secretary Bialecki also joined with state and local officials to announce a $55,000 grant to the Blackstone Valley Education Foundation (BVEF) to support and expand its manufacturing career awareness campaign. 

“Vocational technical high schools are providing our future workforce with the skills they need to compete in the manufacturing industry,” said Bialecki. “Through our strong partnerships with schools such as Blackstone, we are ensuring a strong manufacturing workforce for our future.”

During the tour, Secretary Bialecki observed students in the Electronics & Manufacturing Technology, Manufacturing & Engineering Technology and Drafting & Engineering Technology programs.

Grant Money

The $55,000 grant will support the Blackstone Valley Education Foundation (BVEF) in expanding its manufacturing career awareness campaign.

The Blackstone Valley Education Foundation (BVEF) will establish a pilot program known as the Mass Manufacturing Pipeline Program (M2P2) to provide collaboration between its member public school districts and area manufacturers, including identifying prospective students, offering on-site training sessions and creating a recommended technical skills-oriented curriculum.

“Leveraging public education and training resources to meet the hiring needs of employers, particularly in advanced manufacturing and IT, has been a key priority of the Patrick Administration,” said Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rachel Kaprielian. “Technical high schools like Blackstone Valley play a critical role in helping to shape the future workforce for these industries.”
