Let’s bring this inspired national model for free youth-oriented job training in the creative and high-tech industries to Bristol!
“The National Center for Arts & Technology (NCAT) has one very simple goal: to make the entire world a better place. While this may sound impossible, NCAT has a very pragmatic approach to realizing this objective. By replicating a proven model of community and educational development in cities across the United States of America and the globe, NCAT is spreading hope and knowledge to people and places desperately needing it.
NCAT uses the Manchester Bidwell Corporation educational model – consisting of adult career training and youth arts components that serve thousands of people in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – as a template. After extensive research and relationship building with other local not-for-profits and businesses, NCAT helps craft a center for arts and technology that fits the unique needs evidenced by the locale.”
