GRID hosts Inspire Giving Employer Showcase

This month we celebrate the completion of our Inspire Giving project, a program by the Sacramento Metro Chamber Foundation. Inspire Giving is a charitable fund that seeks to support and grow the spirit of giving in the Capital Region. Our project expanded our employer placement network and provided job readiness programming to our trainees looking to find solar careers - 88% of our trainees from the project found employment. Throughout the year, we were supported by the Chamber Foundation financially as well as by an entire network of skilled volunteers. Volunteer support included consulting from an Inspire Giving Marketing Committee, volunteer instructors for job readiness workshops, volunteers to help install solar for 2 low-income families and the development of a Workforce Advisory Council. A big thank you to the Chamber Foundation, Inspire Giving members, MetroEdge volunteers and everyone who supported us throughout the project!
