Our Young Adults
Meet our Young People
UTEC’s program is designed for young adults with proven barriers to success, primarily incarceration and gang involvement.
Hear Their Stories
“Since prioritizing my mental health with my counselor, I’ve learned how to talk through how I’m feeling to better identify what’s going on, and it’s been so helpful that I’m not afraid to ask for help anymore.”
Who We Work With
UTEC’s target population is young people ages 17-25 in Lowell, Lawrence, and Haverhill, MA, who are out of school and have histories of gang involvement or incarceration.
UTEC’s focus on older youth is intentional. We seek to serve young people who may not have found success in other, shorter-term programs or who may have been underserved by the judicial system. We believe everyone deserves a clean slate.
