Green Jobs

Access Green is as proud of its work in local job training as it is in any other area.

In work with Goodwill of Greater Washington, Access Green has helped with one of the Greater Washington Region’s largest green jobs training efforts. The ‘Green Pathway DC’ program, now in its second year, has trained hundreds of Washingtonians in the areas of green building, weatherization, and smart meter installations. Access Green’s Sam Brooks was a key member of the team that initially conceptualized, and acquired funding for, the Green Pathway DC program.

Access Green’s Joe Andronaco has also played a pivotal role in helping shape the District government’s policy on green jobs. He was an appointed member of Mayor Adrian Fenty’s ‘Green Jobs Task Force,’ where he Chaired the Economic Development and Small business Committee, and he also advised on green jobs and workforce development an an appointed member of the Sustainable Energy Utility Advisory Board.
