Workforce Development


Building the next generation of sustainable construction workers

Rapidly increasing demand for high performance, energy-efficient homes has created a significant labor shortage in the residential construction industry. Leveraging more than 20 years of experience in the green building sectors, we partner with all types of organizations to analyze the market, develop new approaches, and deliver custom training programs that help bring new and diverse workers to the industry. Our programs can be tailored to meet specific needs, either as an enhancement to work you’re already doing or as a standalone initiative. All of our programs are designed to help bridge the gap between demand for climate-friendly housing and the skills of the existing workforce.


 


Current Program Offerings

New Worker Training & Development

Training and resources specifically targeted at students and workers new to the construction industry. We partner with community organizations to offer a mix of classroom and on-the-job training to set new workers up for success. 

Residential Career Hub

We developed this resource to serve as a hub for all things related to building a career in residential construction. Here you’ll find career pathway information, see available jobs, and learn more about how to connect with our programs.
