Civic Works’ Baltimore Center for Green Careers

Civic Works’ Baltimore Center for Green Careers aims to make Baltimore’s economy more equitable and sustainable by training residents for jobs in the green economy.  Residents are trained in brownfields remediation, residential energy efficiency, or solar instillation, and receive hands-on experience through the Center’s social enterprise.  The Center also focuses on “high-road business development” by marketing and channeling procurement opportunities to employers committed to equitable hiring and employment standards.  Since 2003, the Center has graduated 475 city residents, 85 percent of whom have secured family-sustaining employment, and directed $2.5 million in procurement opportunities to “high-road” employers.
