Green Jobs for Young Adults in Howard County


People Acting Together in Howard (PATH) is a Howard County interfaith organization that works to create systematic change for the wellbeing of members of our community.   The grassroots efforts of this group has had victories in the areas of health care, housing and transportation.  Priority areas for the organization are jobs, health care, affordable housing, aging in place and usury.  If your congregation might be interested in joining their organization they can be contacted at 443-433-8054 or path.iaf@gmail.com.

The green jobs for young adults mentioned in the title of the blog is described below:

Howard County, People Acting Together in Howard (PATH), The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, and The Parks & People Foundation are partnering in a program to create green jobs for young adults in Howard County while improving watershed health through the reduction of stormwater runoff. The program will focus on training young adults in the design and installation of green watershed protection measures, such as the use of rain gardens and rain barrels. For the summer of 2012 the young adults will install rain gardens on institutional and business properties within Howard County. The program will also provide the young adults opportunities to develop transferable skills and knowledge that can give them a leg-up in this difficult job marketplace. For further information, contact Donald Tsusaki at water@zitherist.com.
