Now in its fourth year, Solar One’s Green Workforce Training Program has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of men and women who have completed trainings. We spent a day back in October at the Lab in Long Island City, meeting trainees from STRIVE International and Non-Traditional Employment for Women (NEW) and learning about their experiences in the Solar One program. These are stories from the ReNEW trainees (we’ll add the STRIVE ones next week). Unfortunately we didn’t get pictures, but their words say a lot:
ReNEW is a free 6-week pre-apprenticeship program that highlights green collar jobs and is designed to give women insight into sustainable careers and perspective on current and upcoming opportunities in New York City.
