Louisiana Green Corps enables youth, ages 18 through 25, who are not in school or working, to overcome barriers to employment and career success while contributing to their community. We seek to increase participants' abilities to gain and maintain stable full-time employment at wages that can sustain their families. We do this by focusing on four critical types of services in our 14-week program: academic readiness, work readiness, construction skills training, and environmental awareness and stewardship.
"The Louisiana Green Corps program brought me out of poverty and helped me connect to a job in the sustainable energy industry where I feel good about the work I do and the impact my work has on the environment." -Christophe Hinton
