LARE TRAINING CENTER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH IBM

 LARE TRAINING CENTER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH IBM
 LAWRENCE, Mass., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- At a ribbon-cutting


ceremony held today at its Lawrence facility, LARE Training Center officially announced its designation as an IBM job training center.
 LARE, a nonprofit organization that prepares unemployed, economically disadvantaged adults for professional positions in business, was selected to participate in IBM's nationwide job training center network because of the outstanding quality of its programs and its strong track record in placing graduates.
 "We are extremely delighted to be working in partnership with IBM," said Sheryl Scannell, LARE's Director of Training. "With IBM's loan of computer equipment, software and support, we can provide our students -- and their future employers -- with an even stronger competitive skill base demanded by jobs in today's business environment."
 Established in 1981, LARE has developed an enviable track record in the vocational training field. Featured on national news programs and recognized by professionals in the field as a leader in developing and implementing award-winning training techniques, LARE has received the Massachusetts Excellence Award for Service to the Hispanic Population and was a National Finalist for the Presidential Jobs Training Partnership Act Award. LARE's most recent recognition was 1991 Contractor of the Year Award for the Merrimack Valley Private Industry Council, making LARE the first contractor to receive consecutive awards.
 This latest relationship with IBM allows for a state-of-the-art Clerical/Computer Skills Training Program. Students develop automated business skills by combining skills training classroom sessions with actual hands-on computer applications. Graduates of the program are equipped to compete successfully in even the most difficult job markets by using the most popular business software in demand today.
 "The training programs that LARE provides have been tremendously successful in helping to change people's lives," said David E. Herlihy, manager of external programs for IBM in New England. "We know how important job training is both to individuals and to the community; in fact, we can measure how graduates of job training centers like LARE have put back more than $400 million into the U.S. economy during the past two decades."
 IBM sponsors 100 job training centers across the country in urban areas with high unemployment, in cooperation with nonprofit community-based organizations. The company established its first job training center in 1968 in Los Angeles, which is still in operation.
