Updated: Dec 23, 2021

Youth support agency cites positive employment outcomes for clients in NCC programs

NASHUA, NH - Nashua Community College has been voted 2018 Training Provider of the Year by the staff at MY TURN, a nonprofit youth support agency headquartered in Manchester.

Students from MY TURN have enrolled in courses across disciplines at the college including Business, Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Design, and Precision Manufacturing. The Microelectronics Boot Camp, a 10 -week non-credit career training session, has also been a popular choice.

“NCC has been one of our most valued training providers of the past decade, and the Microelectronics Boot Camp has helped us achieve some of our best employment outcomes of MY TURN's 34-year history,” said Allison Joseph, executive director of MY TURN.

The Microelectronics Boot Camp at NCC prepares students for wire and ribbon-bonding positions at advanced manufacturing companies such as BAE Systems. The boot camp has maintained a high employment rate for graduates at nearly 95 percent; which includes alumni who hail from MY TURN.

MY TURN serves youth between the ages of 14 and 24 in high schools and communities across New Hampshire and north central Massachusetts. The programs primarily focus on workforce-related opportunities, making the relationship with NCC particularly strong.

“I was very excited to hear about this, and we are honored to get the award,” said Jon Mason, corporate, community, and continuing education coordinator at NCC. Mason serves as liaison to MY TURN for students enrolled in the Microelectronics Boot Camp. “We know how hard these kids work, so the award is really for them,” he said, adding, “Helping them is the best award we can receive.”

MY TURN participants and alumni who received training at NCC are currently employed by some of the area’s most high-tech employers including BAE Systems, OMNI Components, General Electric, Crane Currency, and Mercury Systems.

Nashua Community College President Lucille Jordan will accept the Training Provider of the Year award at the MY TURN Bright Futures event on April 26 at the Derryfield Country Club in Manchester.

The fourth annual Bright Futures event includes networking opportunities with professionals and advocates advancing the MY TURN mission; an auction with items including Red Sox tickets, vacation packages, and other unique experiences; and appetizers. A cash bar will be available.

Tickets are $30 each, and sponsorships are available. To get tickets, visit EventBrite. For more information about sponsorships, contact Allison Joseph at 603-321-3416 or ajoseph@my-turn.org. All funds raised support MY TURN’s operations and outreach.
