Did you know Moraine Park is a Fair Trade College? Actually we are the first Fair Trade technical college in the U.S. Go MPTC! In May, 2016 we will celebrate our one year anniversary as a fair trade college!
What is Fair Trade?
Fair trade supports farmers and artisans in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers lack economic opportunity and often face steep hurdles in finding markets and customers for their goods. Fair Trade is about making a tremendous impact on artisan and farmer communities while offering great products to the public all around the world.
Moraine Park Technical College held an IT Careers Completion Ceremony on March 8. Fourteen students received Website Security certificates and three students received Content Management Systems certificates. Two students, Becky Scannell, and Adam Skeel received special congratulations for completing all four of the certificates earned through the U.S. Department of Labor Interface grant program: http://www.morainepark.edu/itcareers
We all know that creating a great program is important, but so is connecting with community partners and potential students to make them aware of the opportunity. And that’s just what Anne Lemke, Moraine Park Technical College (MPTC) TAACCCT 3 and 4 Grant Manager, has been doing.
While sharing information about programs and services available at MPTC with a Forward Service Job Club, Anne met Andy Bond. Andy has since been accepted into the Spring 2016 Mobile Apps for iOS and Android Certificates cohort at MPTC.
