Green Energy Council Atlanta Ambassadors Bring Green Job Training To Our City
What do 14 unrelated Atlanta residents from diverse backgrounds have in common? They want to start or grow a green business or they want a green job!
And they have volunteered as Atlanta Ambassadors on behalf of the Green Energy Council and Green Jobs Corps (GEC/GJC), a Washington, DC, based non profit that is a political advocate for green industry and a catalyst for training the new green workforce. In addition to offering live training classes in selected cities, the GEC/GJC consolidates and makes available best-in-class training courses such as the solar installation training offered by Solar Energy International. GEC/GJC is also in the process of partnering with 1,500 job placement agencies in order to ensure that students, after receiving their certifications, secure a green job.
In late August 2009, the GEC offered its first courses in Atlanta, Green & Sustainability 101 and Ecobrokering. Attendees were both eager to learn and very motivated to help this organization take root in Atlanta. At this early stage in establishing training in Atlanta, students are fortunate to have GEC’s founder, Ralph Avallone, as an instructor. He has a wealth of information to share and is very committed to and passionate about the U.S. moving forward to meet the challenges of energy independence as well as creating awareness about sustainable lifestyles. There has been a lot of green rhetoric in the media for over a year; however, information that can be acted upon by green entrepreneurs and green job seekers is sparse to non-existent.
As a result, the Atlanta Ambassadors are asking for your help to circulate this information about the GEC/GJC and its next live training courses which will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at
