is in the midst of a Green Revolution that aims to maximize and
protect our natural resources. To demonstrate its support of Mother
Earth, the Federal Government has made available millions of dollars
for the development of green technology and green jobs. This funding
and the green jobs movement have spawned growth in many sectors
of the job market, including renewable energy and weatherization.
Recognizing the need for trained individuals to fill these positions,
many organizations have launched green job training programs, with
some specifically created for low-income Americans and communities.
June 8 at 3 p.m. EDT, Neighborhood Networks will host a Webinar
with subject-matter experts who will share information about green
jobs and training opportunities that help low-income individuals
take advantage of these growing employment sectors. Presenters include:
