Creating Jobs

There is a national movement to create job programs that will both address our biggest environmental concerns (say, climate change for example) and provide good jobs for people who need them (like you!)

National Movement

Green Jobs are one of the fastest growing job sectors in the country! Pioneers like Van Jones and Majora Carter have been creating a national movement for green jobs from Oakland to the South Bronx.

Alaska is Onboard

Good news for us: Alaska is ahead of the curve. Our state is investing in renewable energy, energy efficiency, weatherization - and we know we need to train people to work in those jobs to transform our economy, our communities, and our environment - to build a better world.
