Sponsor a Solar Job Training Installation

Suport GRID while providing hands-on experience for local job-trainees, low-income students, and at-risk youth to supplement what they have learned in the classroom. Each workday is coordinated with the training program’s structure and curriculum to ensure that every solar job trainee has the chance to complete an installation from start to finish, providing needed experience to gain employment in the growing solar industry. GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles works with local job trainee organizations and programs such as Los Angeles Conservations Corps, the Venice Community Housing Corporation YouthBuild, the Los Angeles Trade Technical College, the Center for Employment Training, and Taller San Jose ("St. Joseph's Workshop").  For more information contact aogunbadejo@gridalternatives.org or (310) 735-9765.

Equipment donations help GLA keep installation costs down and provide money-saving solar to even more families. Partners' products are handled by thousands of volunteers each year, and we offer our organization-wide partners all the benefits of our financial supporters, as well as recognition on social media and on our website.
