INVEST IN UTEC TODAY

Members of UTEC arrived at Gillette Stadium expecting to simply give a presentation to the Patriots about their mission to nurture the ambition of our most disconnected young people to trade violence and poverty for social and economic success. Instead, they were surprised with a $75,000 grant from the Patriots Social Justice Fund.

- The New England Patriots players (Jan. 2019)

[UTEC is] turning gang members into productive citizens through programs like their culinary institute. In talking about their success, their enthusiasm to do more is contagious. Our problem is not that no one has figured out what works. Just the opposite.

- Governor Charlie Baker in his inaugural address, 2015

The most important thing I've learned at UTEC is to keep chipping away. Keep trying no matter how hard life gets, because there's always going to be that struggle.

- Victor, UTEC young adult
