Goodwill of Greater Washington, in cooperation with the Green Builders Council of D.C., administers a 10-week job training program in the field of sustainable building. The carbon neutral project will train out of work and underemployed District residents in a high-growth/demand field, create a local workforce more capable of building energy efficient and environmentally sustainable buildings, homes, and neighborhoods, and provide a proven pathway to green jobs in the District.
Through a combination of classroom assessments and customer service/interpersonal skills workshops, students identify their marketable strengths, identify appropriate employment opportunities, develop a resume and cover letter that clearly highlight their abilities, and improve upon their interview skills.
