Green Jobs Training Program Students Part 1

One of the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund's workforce partners is Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice. This partnership focuses on DWEJ's Green Jobs Training Program.

The goals in this program are to:
  • provide meaningful employment opportunities to underemployed and unemployed individuals, primarily in Detroit
  • create equality in accessing green jobs and creating green businesses for Detroit residents
  • expand opportunities for local businesses in green and brownfield industries through a highly skilled and trained Detroit-based workforce
  • transform the lives and communities of Detroit through sustainable, environmentally just and green job practices.
To hear first-hand the impact of the Green Jobs Training Program, watch the following interview of one of the program's students, Mr. Joseph Character.

Check back later this week for more interviews of students in the Green Jobs Training Program!
