Maine Lauded by White House for Technology Workers Program

Aug 4, 2015

A program aimed at addressing a void in Maine workers skilled in computing and information technologies is being recognized by the White House as an example of innovation.

Ed Cervone is executive director of Educate Maine, the force behind Project Login, which he says was designed "to get students interested and involved and connect them to paying apprenticeships and internships at about 40 participating employers across Maine."

The Project Login campaign, which also involves public and private colleges in Maine, is receiving the TechHire Community designation at the first-ever "White House Demo Day" in Washington Tuesday.
