Agency Testimonials

Boston Branch NAACP

“I am very pleased to recommend MAP to the community members whereas they are trying to provide employment to residents in the building trade that are non union employment. It was a no brainer when John Rich approached me on coming to the community of color and offering this opportunity. We collaborate with NAACP Boston Branch & TFCC Boston "Watch Men" to get the word to the residents on this program. we go door to door neighborhood to neighborhood and every community meeting to get the word in every ear that needs to hear about MAP.” ~ Supreme Richardson 


Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission - MRC 

The Merit Apprenticeship Program (MAP) has opened another door to MRC candidates by providing entry-level and skilled employment opportunities, with apprenticeship hours and education, in a wide variety of labor trades. Our collaboration with this program is outstanding and we hope to expand our opportunities as the construction market rebounds. Our electricians, plumbers, sheet metal fabricators, among others, have gained invaluable experience through their participation in MAP and being hired by industry experts.Margie Gilligan - Employment Services Specialist - MRC
