This year our SolarCorps Fellows honored Cesar Chavez's legacy as an educator, environmentalist, and civil rights leader through a service day on March 31st.
Every day at GRID Alternatives we work to provide hands-on training for those interested in working in the solar energy field. The commitment to teaching is not only for our volunteers, but also for our SolarCorps Fellows, individuals who spend a year in service with GRID Alternatives in exchange for learning opportunities that will help jump-start their careers.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day of National Service was recognized across the U.S. as people rolled up their sleeves and took part in projects to better their community. For GRID Alternatives AmeriCorps members, this was a day to celebrate their year-long service to GRID Alternatives.
Last week 23 GRID Alternatives SolarCorps members made their way to the Solar Living Institute for a week-long solar PV course. When I arrived on Sunday, I found that I would be staying in a small hut with 3 beds.
