The solar industry changed his life, and we'll always have the backs of resilient people like David.

Last month, GRID's very own Volunteer Coordinator, David Andrade, shared his story in an AJ+ video that quickly turned viral, amassing 250,000+ views on Facebook alone. After being released from nearly a decade in prison, David turned his life around through finding meaningful work in solar with the help of organizations who saw his potential, like GRID Alternatives and Homeboy Industries.

Now, we're building the foundation for a strong 2018 by announcing that our end-of-year fundraising campaign focuses on a pair of internships that will offer the potential for dramatic change to two returning citizens like David. Read about this new opportunity in detail on our page, and please support the Greater Los Angeles regional office's work.
