Greenforce Initiative: Advancing Greener Careers
Mwase, Gloria; Keniry, Julian
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v86 n1 p22-24 Jan 2011
With support from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and Jobs for the Future (JFF) formed the Greenforce Initiative--a two-year venture that will work with community colleges across the nation to strengthen their capacity to implement or refine quality pathways that lead to careers in the green sector. Building on the combined experience of NWF and JFF in environmental sustainability and workforce development, respectively, the Greenforce Initiative will provide high-impact assistance to community colleges in targeted regions across the United States. The Greenforce Initiative created "Learning and Action Networks" in six regions across the country, including Northern Virginia, South Texas, Metro Chicago, Michigan, North Carolina, and Seattle.
