School Mentoring Program

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description The Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance (MA OTA) is offering an opportunity for local schools to improve chemical management practices. As part of this effort, OTA works with companies that are interested in becoming mentors to local schools.

Franklin High School recently became the tenth member of MA OTA’s School Mentoring Program. In recent years, MA OTA and MassDEP identified serious chemical management issues at schools. Through the mentoring program, MA OTA matches schools with volunteer environmental health and safety experts from the private and public sectors. The mentors work with schools to improve safety and ensure regulatory compliance; reduce chemical purchases and waste generation; and train school staff. The program brochure and list of program participants is available online.
