Greetings from Veterans Green Jobs!
Veterans Green Jobs (VGJ) is a non-profit organization, with headquarters in Boulder, Colorado that provides exemplary green jobs education and career development opportunities for military veterans, empowering and supporting them to lead America's transition to energy independence, ecological restoration, community renewal, and economic prosperity.
The Veterans Green Jobs Academy(tm), part of VGJ, provides intensive education, training and career development services for military veterans interested in pursuing careers in green industries. The Veterans Green Jobs Academy provides both classroom-based and on-the-job training opportunities for military veterans in green jobs sectors. Incorporating college degree programs, intensive residential programs, on-the-job training and Conservation Corps programs, the Veterans Green Jobs Academy curriculum is designed to advance veterans' skill sets in ways that can be immediately applied to the marketplace, as well as provide accredited programs leading to both 2 and 4-year degrees.
The Veterans Green Jobs Academy places individualized mentoring, support and attention at the center of our educational model, with the aim that every single participant realize their maximum potential not just during our programs, but over the long haul. We provide numerous different types of training, from short 2-week intensives to full academic-year programs, both residential and non-residential, in order to create as many gateways to higher 'green' education and green career development as possible for veterans.
Veterans Green Jobs training programs will be based in Colorado in 2009. They anticipate expanding into at least 4 states in 2010, and hope to be in every state within several years. Many VGJ programs will launch in Summer and Fall of 2009, and the first Home Energy Auditor Training (HEAT) was successfully completed this Spring.
Detailed information on VGJ can be obtained from their website at: Veteran Green Jobs
Additionally, you may contact Dr. William Doe, Associate Dean for the Warner College of Natural Resources (William.firstname.lastname@example.org), who is an Advisory Board member of VGJ.
