Education and Career Advising Services through MassEdCO

MassEdCO (Massachusetts Education and Career Opportunities) is the Commonwealth's largest provider of free, community-based education and career advising services, meeting with about 12,000 people per year.

  • Are you interested in a vocational program, but don't know what's available?

  • Are you interested in going to a 2-year community college, but aren't sure how to move forward?

  • Are you interested in a 4-year university program but don't know if you can make that happen?

Part of MassEdCo's mission is to work with low-income people, first generation Americans, and marginalized youth and adults, to help them learn about area opportunities and make good decisions about educational and job training programs.

In addition, they help people learn about available financial resources that can assist with fulfilling your goals.
