International Development Overview
MTC cares about people, their livelihood, and their future.
Worldwide unemployment, underemployment, and marginalization plague hundreds of millions of people. The frustration and disappointment that plays out in the lives of individuals, communities, and countries negatively impacts the potential for personal prosperity, economic development, and stability. In many regions and countries, high numbers of at-risk youth and marginalized populations are both an underutilized asset, as well as a possible threat if their energy is not directed to constructive activities.
MTC International is dedicated to helping people develop the skills needed to build better lives for themselves and their families. MTC is a leader in workforce development, working with more than 35,000 people each year.
