Giving Youth An Eco-Advantage!
Green Tech conducts weekly classroom instruction, green tours and comprehensive adult/peer mentoring. Our program is based on preparing youth for careers that contribute to energy efficiency, renewable energy and overall efforts to develop sustainable communities.

Green Tech Students are taught the core element of “Going Green” is to improve health conditions for all humans sharing the earth. Our goal is to develop quality business development and workforce skills for a cleaner environment through smart social, economic and human development strategies.

Green Tech connects young adults to high-wage jobs in the emerging clean, green market sector. Considered the fastest growing economic sector in the world, green technology is the fifth largest growth industry in the U.S.  

New environmental initiatives developing renewable energy and energy efficiency
will spur more than 100,000 jobs in California and 37 million jobs nationwide.  

Green Tech builds specialized green skills preparing its students to secure gainful employment in building design, construction trades, environmental management, science and engineering.

Thank you for your generous, continued support of Green Technical Education and Employment. With your help, we have made huge strides for both the future of our planet and our next generation.​

Ten years ago, I realized we had to help lead the community in a fight for a more positive future. I realized the burden of climate change and the rising rates of pollution lie heavily on our shoulders. We see the consequences of pollution every day, not only in our environment, but in the physical health of our loved ones as rates of asthma and cancer increase. Near the end of 2008 I also realized our youth will be the ones who will have be the recipients of our planets peril and the climate heroes to mitigate our environmental health dilemma.

Green Tech has now reached more than 400 students with workforce training programs in the areas of aquaponics and urban agriculture, solar technology, entrepreneurship, computer programming, energy efficiency and pre-apprentice construction. Last year, six more students were employed with the assistance of the Green Tech program and three more graduated from High School, two entered college and three more received their driver’s license.
