Envirolution/New York, NYAre you looking for a job in the energy efficiency
field but are having a hard time finding the jobs, accessing the market and/or
getting any response from employers? Or maybe you're getting some interviews but
you keep hearing that you need more industry specific technical training and/or
hands-on experience?! Or perhaps you're currently employed and are looking to
transition to a more fulfilling career that allows you to make a living AND a
positive impact? If any of these are true for you, then this program is
specifically designed to assist YOU.
Organizational Overview:
Envirolution is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and
empowering the leaders that will drive the transition to a truly just and
sustainable economy. We achieve this by providing a unique blend of
service-based sustainability education, leadership development and career
advancement services.
Program Overview:
Envirolution's Win-Win Campaign is an energy efficiency technical training and
internship program, combined with an energy efficiency outreach, education and
implementation assistance initiative for small businesses. The program is
implemented on a part-time basis, during off-work hours (i.e. nights & weekends)
and is comprised of two interwoven components: the in-class training component
(60 hours) and the in-the-field internship component (60 hours). After
successful completion of the program, we also provide paid internship
opportunities, job placement assistance and additional professional
certification (i.e. BPI, LEED) test-prep training.
Program Process:
This 8-week program begins with a 30-hour bootcamp which takes place over two
consecutive weekends. The bootcamp serves as a crash-course into energy
efficiency principles, auditing practices, energy conservation measures (ECMs),
the retrofit implementation process and the NYC economic incentives landscape to
prepare the participants to go out into the field. In order to complete bootcamp
and proceed to the internship portion of the program, participants must pass a
written and a field test.
Once the bootcamp is complete, interns are broken up into teams, paired with
professional mentors and are assigned to work with one of our contractor
partners. Interns are then responsible for reaching out to the small businesses
in a target neighborhood to educate them on the many energy efficiency solutions
and incentives available to them. Each intern is required to: (1) reach out and
educate at least fifty businesses; and (2) to assist at least twelve businesses.
Assisting a business entails providing them with a free energy audit, qualifying
them for eligible incentive, and connecting them with the appropriate agencies,
contractors and/or vendors to facilitate the implementation of energy efficiency
Through this innovative hybrid training program that combines classroom
training, mentoring and fieldwork, participating interns gain invaluable
real-world, hands-on experience and concrete energy auditing and project
management skills that are applicable across a wide spectrum of career
opportunities in the emerging green economy.
â The next start date the for the session will be January 19th
â We start a new session of the program approximately every two months.
