Program’s model of workforce development, social enterprise and demand generation is helping to build an inclusive and equitable green economy
Friday, August 29 at 11:00 AM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.)will tour the educational facilities and meet with current students and graduates of Civic Works’ Baltimore Center for Green Careers. Senator Cardin will participate in demonstrations of the hands-on training laboratory for energy retrofit installers, attend a career fair for recent graduates of Civic Works’ brownfields remediation training and participate in a roundtable discussion with graduates, staff and supporters of the program.
“More than 400 people have graduated from these programs since 2003 and the program maintains an average job placement rate of 85 percent,” said Senator Cardin. “That’s incredibly successful, especially considering that 9 of 10 graduates had a history of involvement in the criminal justice system. What’s more, by gaining skills in brownfields remediation and improving residential energy efficiency, the types of jobs done by the program’s graduates enhance the environment for all Marylanders.”
