PIC Programs: An Overview

Boston Youth Skyline

 

PIC initiatives thrive when business and community needs overlap. Education and employment are at the heart of PIC programs, from high school through adulthood. In Boston's knowledge-based economy, one needs both academic credentials and workplace skills to succeed.

The PIC organizes workplace learning experiences for high school students and recent graduates through a dynamic staff of career specialists, employer organizers, and program coordinators. The PIC extends its reach to unemployed adults, entry level workers, and special populations through the city's three one-stop career centers.

The result is a unified approach that focuses on skill development, work experience, and career aspiration. PIC programs serve the needs of employers by developing people to meet the skill and labor needs of the local and state economy.
