Connections with Employers

Date: Wednesday, October 14

Develop relationships with employers in order to connect participants of green job training programs with jobs after graduation.

On the call, we will heard from two training providers from our Green Pathways Out of Poverty working group.

  • Download the presentation by Connie Ashbrook, Executive Director of Oregon Tradeswomen. Connie discussed how relationships with employers and unions have provided placement opportunities for the women this program serves.
  • Download the presentation by Patrick Brown, Program Coordinator and Instructor at OAI, Inc. / Greencorps Chicago - Patrick talked about how relationships with employers, combined with progressive city policy, has resulted in phenomenal placement rates for Greencorps Chicago, a program that largely serves individuals with criminal records and multiple barriers to employment.
