Greenforce Initiative in Texas: Strengthening Pathways to Employment

from Wildlife Promise

As the unemployment rate in Texas hovers around 8.4 percent, the upcoming Greenforce Initiative™ summit plays a critical role in providing pathways to employment in the region.

NWF and Jobs for the Future (JFF) have teamed up to help spur green jobs education, innovation and training at community colleges in select regions across the country.

On October 28, South Texas College will host the first in a series of regional summits, designed to identify economic development opportunities and build relationships between employers, campuses, and lower-skilled adults.

Summit participants will explore clean energy economy opportunities in San Antonio, Houston, southern Texas and surrounding areas.  Click here to learn more about the summit, and follow this two-year initiative on Twitter @Greenforce.
