Yule said. This opportunity with Career Collaborative offered me the chance to help grow a scalable program that effects tremendous positive change in the lives of low-income adults and for New Englands economic advancements.
"Not only does the work that Career Collaborative does have a long-term impact on the livelihoods of program participants, it also directly and indelibly benefits Massachusetts businesses that hire our clients. I am so excited to be at the helm of this truly remarkable organization.
