A Path to Cleantech Careers
Cleantech San Diego is participating in the San Diego County College and Career Readiness Consortium, a program in partnership with Junior Achievement, United Way, and San Diego Workforce Partnership to increase opportunities for students to prepare for college and a career. As a partner of the Consortium, Cleantech San Diego helps generate learning opportunities within San Diego’s regional cleantech sector for students in grades 8-14. Cleantech San Diego is seeking help from the business, civic, and nonprofit communities, on behalf of the school districts in San Diego County, to provide students with real-world experiences through work-based learning experiences.
School is back in full swing and there are many opportunities for local companies, universities, and an agencies to support high school and community college students. With support from Junior Achievement and San Diego Workforce Partnership, all of the guesswork is removed on how to structure a guest speakership, company tour, or internship. Greatest needs are in engineering, transportation, and building trades. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
