The Green Academy is a model ‘train-the-trainer’ academy for understanding “what is energy efficiency and sustainability.” The Green Academy will provide hands-on training in energy efficiency and sustainability to 30 high school, community college, and university students in the MESA pipeline (High schools with MESA Schools Programs in San Diego and Imperial Valley, and MESA programs at San Diego City College, Southwestern College, and San Diego State University).
In addition to receiving hands on training and a training packet, the trainees will be exposed to energy efficiency and to green careers at San Diego Gas & Electric.
The Green Academy is developed, organized, and implemented by 2 MESA staff, in collaboration with the San Diego State University PowerSave Green Campus.
The goal of the Green Academy is to prepare the trainees to deliver presentations on energy efficiency and sustainability to their peers at their respective institutions. Through these school presentations, the Green Academy outreach is expected to impact over 1,000 students from kindergarten through the college level.Comments closed
San Diego MESA Alliance receives SDG&E Green Future grant
October 18, 2012
San Diego, CA – The San Diego Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) Alliance has been awarded a $30,000 San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) Green Future grant.
The objective of the grant is three-fold: 1) Enhance/develop energy efficiency and sustainable building job skills training that meets current industry demand; 2) Improve outreach of and promote participation in training programs, especially for the hard-to-reach worker, and 3) Provide “green” career exploration opportunities to post-secondary education students.
With respect to the third objective, A Green Future is interested in reaching post-secondary education students. The goal is to create student awareness of worthwhile careers in energy efficiency and sustainability, and from there provide opportunities to explore those fields more directly and in greater
depth. There is also a desire to help students understand what education, training or experience is typically required in the sustainability career of their interest.
