We hold frequent employee events as well as multiple training and development opportunities throughout the year. We also take Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion seriously here at NECC; we currently have several DEI initiatives underway. Ultimately, NECC is a forward-thinking organization that hires mission-driven people who are dedicated to using their various talents to serve families and children in our community; we hope you’ll be one of them.
