Gateways to Green Building Workforce Partnership

Resource: Gateways to Green Building Workforce Partnership

The Gateways to Green Building workforce partnership provides residents of high-poverty neighborhoods with various green construction occupational training opportunities. It aligns resources such as education and training programs, registered apprenticeships, state and local government, neighborhood organizations, and employers to address workforce and economic development needs. Training offerings are developed to respond to local employers’ needs, and currently focus on energy-efficient construction, construction industry safety, and hazardous-waste operations and emergency response.
