This open house will introduce high school students to the developing field offshore wind on Martha’s Vineyard, career pathways within the industry, and how to prepare for those careers with technical training and education.
Students will hear from renewable energy insiders, education providers, and offshore engineers, followed by a Q&A session to answer any questions students may have.
Interested students should select the ACE MV Offshore Wind Open House option for their flex period on June 8th.
Join ACE MV (along with representatives from the renewable energy sector) this Wednesday to learn about workforce training opportunities for students in offshore wind! Education, technical training, turbine technician careers, and working offshore will all be addressed.

Reprinted from The Vineyard Gazette Jan 5 2022:
ACE MV (Adult and Continuing Education of Martha’s Vineyard) has been awarded four new grants to support education and training for Island workers and youths, according to an announcement from the organization this week.
Grants from the MV Bank Charitable Foundation and the MV Community Foundation will fund ACE MV’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program. The bank’s charitable oundation also provided funding for an additional Medical Interpreter Course, to train bilingual Vineyard residents in ethical and effective interpreter services for hospital, clinic and Covid site language needs. These grants will significantly lower the cost of tuition for each student who enrolls, according to the announcement.
A grant from the Couch Family Foundation will support ACE MV’s Youth Workforce & Career Pathways programming for the Island’s high school youth and young adults. And with a grant from Santander Bank Foundation, ACE MV will continue working closely with the high school, the charter school and young adults up to age 26 to provide free workshops and learning opportunities, especially in financial literacy and career readiness.
