Areas of Impact

UTEC is a nationally recognized program for justice-involved young adults. The program starts behind the walls of correctional facilities and transitions into an intensive program in the community post-release. The nature of our wraparound supports, social enterprises, organizing work, training institute, and innovative partnerships creates a variety of impacts in the lives of the individuals and communities we serve. With over 20 years of experience, UTEC is a catalyst, innovating in the way we serve young adults (ages 17-25) who are criminally and/or gang involved in Massachusetts’ Merrimack Valley.
