Job Training Partnerships

GRID Alternatives partners with nearly 70 local job training organizations to provide students with hands-on experience to complement classroom learning and prepare them for employment.

GRID Alternatives provides a classroom in the field for job training organizations, giving their students the experience and networking opportunities they need to get jobs. Each workday is coordinated with the training program's structure and curriculum to ensure that every single person has the chance to complete a solar installation, from start to finish.

Our partners include job training organizations like Center for Employment Training, YouthBuildVeterans Green Jobs, Rising Sun Energy Center and Green City Force; community colleges and vocational schools; and even some high schools. Interested in partnering with us? Contact your local GRID Alternatives office or for organization-wide partnerships contact Erika Symmonds at or (510) 210-8383.
