The Office of Workforce Development--located in the Department of Human Service Programs--coordinates access to employment and training services, working to improve residents’ skills and to help employers meet their hiring needs. Their website is a great resource about several employment and training programs available to Cambridge adults and youth, including the Cambridge Employment Program.

The Economic Development Division (EDD) supports several related programs aimed at developing a skilled workforce among residents of Cambridge Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy (NRS) areas.

  • Cambridge BioMedical Careers Program: This eight month program is designed to enable local residents complete a Certificate in Biomedical Sciences to prepare them for entry level jobs at local biotechnology companies, universities, research institutions, clinical laboratories and hospitals.
