Who We Are
Massachusetts Education and Career Opportunities, Inc. (MassEdCO, Inc.) is a statewide network of service sites that provides education and career advising to over 14,000 individuals each year. MassEdCO’s mission is to assist individuals in identifying a potential career path and the education programs that will lead to that career, and help them enroll in, pay for and succeed in the appropriate education program.
Economically and educationally disadvantaged individuals are the focus of our services, which are provided free of charge. Funding for MassEdCO comes from the federal and state education departments, as well as private foundation and corporate sources.
MassEdCO provides access to educational and career opportunities that empower people from diverse backgrounds to achieve their potential. (Read our Strategic Plan for 2016-2021.)
Educational Opportunity for All
Empowerment, Opportunity, Diversity, Commitment
MassEdCO’s services are delivered via a partnership model. While we are a Worcester-based organization, we partner with local organizations in our target areas across the state to deliver MassEdCO services. Both youth (as early as 7th grade) in target schools and adults in our target communities are served.
