Solar Training Supervisor
David Andrade was born and raised in East LA. He grew up in a household of strong women. He grew up in a gang environment which led to nine years of incarceration. After that he decided to change his life for the better, and sought the help of Homeboy Industries. He became interested in solar and graduated from Homeboy’s Solar Training Program in 2014, where he eventual became the program coordinator. After three years of doing that, he was offered the position of volunteer training coordinator at GRID Alternatives GLA. He is grateful for the extensive training through Homeboy Industries that put him on a new path in life and for the wonderful new opportunity at GRID.
