Mr. David Deschenes, owner of Spectrum Video Productions LLC, produced a video to capture the passion of our volunteers, supporters and staff for our nonprofit's mission, including thoughtful insight from graduates and current students.
We provide people with the chance to build a foundation so they can succeed on their own - by providing them with employment-focused education and training that is modular in design, and able to be customized to a broad range of skill levels and learning abilities. The program is well-suited for people who have little work experience as well as for people who have worked for years.
"TBICO changed my life.
I didn't know where to go, where to turn.
I am very grateful."
TBICO programs are not gender-specific; however, it is predominantly women who seek out our services. Our population includes people who are unemployed or underemployed, with a great many being dislocated workers downsized after years of working and in need of retraining. Some are displaced homemakers who suddenly find themselves the family breadwinner as a result of divorce or the death or disablement of a spouse. Many more are women who never expected to need help but who for a variety of reasons no longer have adequate income or, perhaps, the skills to manage their income so that they are able to support their family. There is never a cost to participants for any service.
TBICO is a nonprofit organization established in 1993, dedicated to helping people help themselves. Our mission is to promote personal and economic self-sufficiency through education, job training and financial literacy. Our vision - to create long-lasting changes that address the underlying problems that threaten a family's economic stability and ultimately their children's future.
