STAYING GREEN AND GROWING JOBS: Green Infrastructure Operations and Maintenance as Career Pathway Stepping Stones

The operations and maintenance of green infrastructure represents a significant opportunity to create entry-level jobs in the green sector for individuals from disadvantaged communities. In the coming years, thousands of new green infrastructure projects will be installed throughout the country. They will require a workforce trained to maintain and monitor the projects. Developed by Green For All in partnership with American Rivers, Staying Green and Growing Jobs: Green Infrastructure Operations and Maintenance as Career Pathway Stepping Stones reveals that water utilities investing in green infrastructure can outsource operations and maintenance work to workforce development programs that train individuals in green infrastructure – in fact, some already do. Operations and maintenance work gives disadvantaged community members access to jobs and career on-ramps while performing the work required by water utilities.
