"We're excited to see our first class of Electrical Apprentices -- the Class of 2023 -- complete their five-year training program and earn their licensing with the IBEW Local 103."

OUR ROOTS

The household median net worth for White Bostonians is $247,500. Black Bostonians have a median net worth of $8.

People of color are consistently shut out of Boston's prosperity. In 2016, 15 Black men from Boston, led by long-time educator and community activist Bill Moran, set out to disrupt the status quo with the Community Mentoring Team (CMT).


Today, CMT is committed to leveraging strategic and innovative partnerships with developers, contractors, labor unions, government officials, and community leaders to create career opportunities, tools and linkages --- all aimed at creating a stable, thriving and self-sustaining Black community in Boston.
