The green collar apprenticeship program will lead Newark to a greener future.
The GreenCAP will sponsor 100 trade licenses for Newark residents in pluming, electrical and HVAC systems.
They will also target Newark residents, veterans, ex-felons and at risk young people.
The program provides training on the LPCCD's construction projects containing United States Green Council Building (USGBC) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design(LEED) Certified buildings.
GreenCAP graduates also receive a green certificate to verify their classroom instruction and on-the-job training on green construction projects.

"Green collar jobs rebuild a stronger middle class and provide a pathway out of poverty, but the jobs require new skills" -Van Jones, National Green Jobs Advocate/Founder, Green For All.

I think Newark, NJ should be applauded for their efforts to go green and providing people with new skills to sustain theirs and our future. Go green Newark, more to come........ onegreenmama
