The Successful Story Of A Local Community Initiative

Coping with the recession: new visions, plans and strategies

The Mattapan/ Greater Boston Technology Learning Center (MGBTLC) is a non-profit vocational school that focuses on providing free hands-on training in computer related certificate programs. Students are given the opportunity to build their skills in basic computers, Microsoft Office, web design, database management, PC repair, networking, information technology and project management. Last year alone, the MGBTLC trained 500 technicians.  The students come from all ages and ethnic backgrounds.

 A few years ago, Jacques and Karrie Ann Jean created this initiative on the first floor of their two-family home to offer another alternative to those who want to change or start a new career in computer technology or simply learn how to use a computer.  The project has expanded without government funding to become an icon in Greater Boston where many young people, adults and senior citizens come to learn new technology.  This year the school is planning to recruit 600 new students, giving the opportunity to anyone who has the desire to earn a professional certificate and increase their chances of a better livelihood.

With the economy sliding in the midst of an economic crisis, students and concerned citizens have become worried about the future of the school. This weekend, during a church gathering, Jacques and Karrie Ann Jean unveiled a detailed strategic plan to ensure the community that amid the recession, the school will continue to provide the same type of training and career services that have put so many people back to work. That plan includes new management practices, a reduced budget, the creation of a volunteer team and an aggressive fundraising program.  This year’s budget has deflated to only $125,000 that according to the new plan will still give the school the capacity to train more than 600 people, less than $250 per student.  Fifty percent of the budget is expected to come from student registration and lab fees, totaling on average $75 per student.  The school expects to raise the other 50% through private donation and corporate sponsorship.

The school administration is inviting everyone to become part of this wonderful project and act now to save the initiative by making a donation, donating your used computer equipment or by becoming a volunteer.  For more information about  the school, or to sponsor a student, visit their web site at www.towncomputer.com/trainingcenter.htm, call (617) 298-0357 or stop by their office at 24 Regis Road in Mattapan, MA
