Many Dallas residents struggle to keep their homes adequately lit, heated, and cooled. Dallas community leaders are working toward helping alleviate this burden through home weatherization programs, which provide energy affordability for families who live in older, less energy-efficient houses. These programs are already increasing the demand for a highly-skilled green jobs workforce.
By providing free education and training through Green Job Skills, we want to create new job opportunities and mobility for our local workforce by establishing a clear set of competencies on which to base working credentials.
Green Job Skills provides a central hub to a variety of free education and training opportunities. Check back with us often as new classes will be made available.
