It is still hard to believe that Mayor Menino has passed away. A deep sadness has caught us by surprise. For twenty full years, the PIC served as an extension of Mayor Menino's agenda for Boston – and at times helped him shape that agenda. We knew him personally, and he knew us. We will miss him. Rest in peace, Mayor.
The Boston PIC and the Boston Opportunity Agenda are pleased to announce the Boston Opportunity Youth Collaborative's request for proposal (RFP) for a connection center. We seek an organization or organizations to establish a connection center or centers for young people who have a high school credential (GED or diploma), are between the ages of 20 and 24, and are out of school and out of work but want to connect to education or job training. Please find relevant materials and resources below.
The Boston Healthcare Careers Consortium, convened by the Boston PIC, recently released a new policy brief called "From Classroom to Employment: Who Is Hired in Boston's Healthcare Sector?" The brief is based on a 2013-2014 data pilot project led by the Consortium to understand the employment prospects of graduates from healthcare-specific programs at community colleges, and to understand employer preferences for entry-level hires.
