Talking About Green Jobs to Area Students
Over 300 students from Danville City Schools attended the Bate Middle School College and Career Fair on December 19th and learned about green careers. Bluegrass Greensource partnered with Bate Middle School and the Danville Career Pathways Coach to educate students about their college and career opportunities. In addition to learning about different colleges and military opportunities, students also learned about green jobs and green businesses right here in Central Kentucky.
The goal of the Greensource’s Green Jobs Program is to educate guidance counselors and students about the growing green economy so that students will be pursue green careers. Green careers offer students well-paying jobs that also benefit the environment. Our Green Jobs Program, funded by the Americorps VISTA, plans to partner with other schools to host career fairs where green jobs will be highlighted.
