As you can see...

As you can see from my post yesterday, I am very concerned with the state of our youth. However, that, of course is not my only concern. When I did the research to create my site, I found a wealth of information about green jobs. The popularity of green jobs and the growth of this classification of jobs is amazing. The best part is, that many parts of our society are being helped by gaining new skills. I know some of you may say, there's no big difference in one job to the next. Ah!, But there is! You see, by opening trainings for green jobs to individuals who were ex-cons, veterans, or at risk youths, there is a senses of self sustainability. Those skills can help foster hope in a growing community of people who would otherwise be overlooked or left behind in the job market. Many of our blue collar jobs are disappearing and green collar jobs are way to replace the loss of those jobs and gain advancement of a whole new industry. I urge people in depressed areas, to look into helping your town or city with creating and training for green jobs. If you have special skills in writing grants or are a great community organizer, then by all means get started. Your community will benefit in the end!
