Civic Works’ Baltimore Center for Green Careers is making Baltimore’s economy more equitable and sustainable by training residents for jobs in the emerging green economy. The combination of meaningful employment, a living wage, and marketable trade skills has proven powerfully successful. Our B’more Green program provides training in brownfields remediation and home energy efficiency. Participants earn industry-recognized certifications and receive job placement assistance. To date, 90% of B’more Green program graduates have secured employment earning between $12 and $16 per hour. Addressing Baltimore’s urgent need for good jobs that pay a living wage, the Baltimore Center for Green Careers has been transforming the local green economy into a pathway out of poverty since 2003.
