WHO WE ARE

UTEC’s mission and promise is to ignite and nurture the ambition of our most disconnected young people to trade violence and poverty for social and economic success.

UTEC was founded in 1999 as the result of an organizing movement driven by young people to develop their own teen center in response to gang violence in Lowell, MA. Today we serve Lowell, Lawrence, and Haverhill, MA, and we are nationally recognized as a model agency serving justice-involved young adults. Learn more about our programs.
