City officials meet with nonprofit organization to discuss job-training programs for Wynn Boston Harbor

alt

On Monday, December 5, representatives from a Boston-based nonprofit culinary arts training program, the New England Center for Arts and Technology (NECAT), met with city officials and leadership from Wynn Boston Harbor to explore the possibility of developing an adult culinary training program at Everett High School (EHS).

EHS has a first-class culinary arts training facility. But City officials are examining the possibility of locating an adult evening/weekend training program, and/or continuing an education alternative for those interested in the culinary arts.

“With so many food service jobs being created with the Wynn project, it is critical that we create opportunities for employment at Wynn,” Mayor Carlo DeMaria stated. “Developing skills for under- or unemployed adults is one of the most important things we can do as a city. We all know that education is the foundation for people to build a future on.”

Despite the strong Massachusetts economy, chronically underemployed or unemployed adults are struggling to find good jobs at a living wage. NECAT’s Culinary Arts Job Training Program provides practical culinary skills training to Boston’s lowest income populations; many face social challenges and other barriers to stable employment. NECAT offers a marketable skill to struggling adults in an industry with a high demand for skilled workers, now and into the foreseeable future. The food service and hospitality industry in Boston is booming; however, there is a shortage of trained prep and line cooks in the greater Boston area, and many businesses are forced to run their business understaffed.

NECAT Executive Director Joey Cuzzi said, “With the opening of Wynn Boston Harbor in 2019, there will be hundreds of food service jobs to fill. NECAT’s 16-week curriculum includes culinary, career development, job placement and life skills proficiencies. Graduates are prepared to be prep and line cooks, as well as understand the demands of working in a professional kitchen. With competitive entry-level salaries, many find a career path that leads to advancement and long-term financial security.”

The meeting at EHS was a preliminary discussion among NECAT, Wynn Boston Harbor and Everett officials about the expertise of NECAT and examining the training needs in Everett. The next step will be for NECAT to develop a programmatic, operational and financial model for further review and consideration by all parties.

NECAT’s existing programs are free to the public and are supported by private foundations, government grants, job-training vouchers, fundraising events and individual donations.

Meeting attendees included the following Everett officials: Catherine Rollins, Policy Director from the Mayor’s Office; Frederick Foresteire, Superintendent of Schools; Charles Obremski, Assistant Superintendent of Business Affairs for Everett Public Schools; EHS Principal Erick Naumann; and EHS Director of Guidance Kathleen McCormack. Wynn Resorts officials included Wynn Boston Harbor President Robert DeSalvio, Director of Community Relations John Tocco and Senior Vice President and General Counsel Jacqui Krum. NECAT officials included Executive Director Joey Cuzzi and Development Director Ashley Bartell.
