Green Careers Coalition

The mission of the Green Careers Coalition is to develop relationships and scalable models to accelerate the County’s Green New Deal by helping residents access training and job opportunities, and businesses connect with high quality job candidates.

The Green Careers Coalition consists of a team of experts from across the green buildings, clean energy, and energy efficiency industry including: business owners and contractors, Local Union representatives, educational representatives, training providers, energy efficiency professionals, and Ulster County’s Economic and Workforce Development professionals. We are working together to ensure that available trainings meet employers’ real needs and help jobseekers connect to opportunities in the green economy.

The Coalition has designed interactive Green Careers Pathways charts to help illustrate all the various ways jobseekers can access green careers and training opportunities and is working to promote green opportunities throughout the County.
