Providing Educational Opportunities in the Workplace

Since 1991, WEP has served over 4,000 Massachusetts workers.
WEP currently offers 12 classes at five sites. WEP classes are funded by grants from the Massachusetts Department of Secondary and Elementary Education, English for New Bostonians, and First Literacy. WEP is a provider for the 1199SEIU Training and Upgrading Fund Massachusetts Division.
