about utec

In addition to having an amazing mission, UTEC also has an amazing and historic building. After an ambitious renovation, finished in 2012, UTEC is now the oldest LEED Platinum Certified building in the world. With a mix of original architecture and modern amenities, our event spaces are sure to impress your guests.

UTEC, founded in 1999 and based in Lowell, was the result of an organizing movement driven by young people to develop their own teen center in response to gang violence. Today, nationally recognized as a model agency, UTEC's mission and promise is to ignite and nurture the ambition of proven-risk youth to trade violence and poverty for social and economic success.
