The Central Area Collaborative partnered with SphereSolar Energy to apply for the Office of Economic Developments Career Connected Learning Grant. Using goal 3, the communities mandate as outlined in the 2015 – 2018 Commercial Revitalization Plan – Increase Job Training and Social Services for special populations living and working in the Central Area, the CAC looks to provide a green energy focus towards achieving this goal. Looking forward and under the EcoDistrict Imperative of Climate Protection, the CAC focuses on opportunities that align with community mandates, coupled with relevant socio-economic conditions that may cause our community to be overlooked or left behind. This grant will facilitate the development of a curriculum that will provide youth candidates the opportunity to learn about green energy, the technology that supports it, and ways to become involved and/or employed in this critical new industry.
