Over the past 8 years, GBCE has provided skills and readiness training in three different green job clusters: energy conservation and weatherization; environmental and brownfields remediation; and deconstruction, recycling and reuse. Our program combined life skills training and classroom instruction with hands-on practical skills training, site visits, employee shadowing and on-the-job training. We also provided career counseling and case management, pre- and post-employment, to help graduates overcome barriers to success in their new jobs. We now focus on current employees for employment and skills training that will enhance their understanding and performance on the job. Employees also have access to “life skills” classes that enhance their ability to handle their personal challenges.
