Intro to Green Collar Careers


 

Students today are naturally worried about their future. On one hand, they hope to find a stable and rewarding career path; on the other, they are concerned about the vulnerable environment and the uncertainty it will bring. Green Collar Careers is a program that helps students bridge the connection, engaging students to choose a path that promises both a prosperous livelihood and a sustainable future.

By introducing
secondary school students to the green energy sector through workshops and tours the Green Collar Careers program will help develop a workforce that can fill new (and existing) jobs needed for an environmentally-responsible tomorrow.

GCC will equip grade 11 and 12 students with a better understanding of their role in a sustainable future as they gain valuable work skills and exposure to the growing green sector.
