This week, we had the opportunity to train and certify three instructors working in Rising Sun Energy Center’s Green Energy Training Services (GETS) program to teach Roots of Success to twenty women enrolled in their program.

GETS is a pre-apprenticeship job training program for adults in the San Francisco Bay Area who are interested in starting a career in Construction, Energy Efficiency, or Solar, or enter into an apprenticeship in the Building Trades. GETS is a 12-month program that begins with 9 weeks of training in the program’s Berkeley facility. Upon completion, participants receive ongoing case management and job placement assistance, as well as access to alumni events and resources.
