We are thrilled to invite you to join UTEC as we celebrate the grand opening of the The Nancy L. and Richard K. Donahue UTEC Hub for Social Innovation! It has been a long time in the making and with much persistence, perseverance, and support from our donors — we are finally able to take that final step and open our doors!
UTEC’s Hub for Social Innovation comprises three areas: The Catalyst Center, 2Gen Center, and Community Kitchen. The Grand Opening of the Hub is now set for May 17th, 2018 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am, with free admission and activities for all ages.
Enjoy refreshments from UTEC’s own catering social enterprise and take tours of the new building. A short program and naming ceremony will take place during the event with Governor Charlie Baker and other special guests. RSVP for this free celebration by May 10th.
Special thanks to our generous individual donors, along with the MA Early Education and Out of School Time (EEOST) Capital Fund, MassDevelopment’s TDI Cowork program, Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Food Ventures Program, and the U.S. Health & Human Services’ Community Economic Development Program for making this all possible!
The 2Gen Center @ UTEC provides the children (ages 0-5) of UTEC-enrolled young adults with high-quality early childhood education. By serving both generations here at UTEC, we help young parents become more engaged in their children’s development and further strengthen family stability.

Offering 5,000 square feet designed for up to three distinct production spaces, with multiple workstations and a wide array of processing, cooking, and packaging equipment.
