Through the Connecting Activities Program, the MassHire Greater Lowell Workforce Board (MHGLWB) is working to connect high school students with local businesses. Through job shadows, internships, part time-jobs and employer attended events, we can expose our students to the workforce system and to industries that they will be driving in the coming years.
Connecting Activities is a Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) initiative that leverages a statewide infrastructure to support college and career readiness for all students.
The MHGLWB partners with the following schools, located on-site assisting students ages 16-21:
Lowell High School
Greater Lowell Technical High School
Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School
Tewksbury High School
Chelmsford High School
Dracut High School
Tyngsboro High School
We aim to prepare our students to enter the workforce by holding career readiness workshops, recruitment events, job fairs, and one-on-one meetings at each high school, for job application assistance and resume development.
Past employer events/activities include:
Employer panel (Lowell General Hospital, Lowell Five Bank, Lowell National Historic Park, Thermo Fisher Scientific and T.J. Maxx)
On-Site Job Fairs (both virtually and in person)
Employers willing to work with young people are our biggest assets. If you are interested in hiring a student or working with us to expose our students to the workforce, then lets connect!
