The Economic Development Division provides support to Just-A-Start, a nonprofit community development corporation, for its 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.

Working in collaboration with a number of state and local agencies, this Just-A-Start program provides Cambridge residents with an academic foundation in the biomedical science. The program includes a comprehensive laboratory skills course, as well as career counseling and job placement assistance. After the course, participants of the program come out with nineteen (19) college credits from Bunker Hill Community College. The program prepares participants for a variety of jobs within the Cambridge biomedical community, including laboratory technician/assistant, quality control technician, biotechnology manufacturing assistant, and animal care technician.  To find more information, go to Just-A-Start's Training and Education web page or view the video below.
