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.
Combined with the power of Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement, Leeds Standards Certification, and Eight Sustainability Stewardship Standards adapted by COD’s Green Council; stands a 40,200 sq ft tribute to the latest Green Technology. The Mesa Building, also known as “The Green Geek”, was funded by the Measure B Bond Program and budgeted at nearly $17 million.Comments closed
