The MassHire Metro North Workforce Board has announced the selection of Action for Boston Community Development, ABCD, as the next operator of the MassHire Metro North Career Centers located in Cambridge, Chelsea and Woburn, effective July 1.
The career centers serve the 20 cities and towns north of Boston with both jobseeker services and helping local businesses find employees.
ABCD was selected after a comprehensive and competitive procurement process. The procurement committee was impressed with ABCD’s extensive experience with federal, state and local grants and workforce development programs, strong ties to the local community and expansive network of partnerships.
“We are thrilled with the selection of ABCD as our next One-Stop Career Center operator,” said MNWB President and CEO Chris Albrizio-Lee. “We look forward to working closely with ABCD to maximize the impact of MassHire for the benefit of Metro North’s residents and businesses.”
“Our partnership with the MassHire Metro North Workforce Board is an important and meaningful extension of the ways that ABCD helps people in need achieve stability and reach their potential,” said ABCD President/CEO John Drew. “We look forward to contributing our experience in managing large-scale operations to the invaluable resources that MNWB provides.”
