The focus of the Green Generation summer program is to integrate Life Skills, Technical Skills and Leadership Skills that young adults need to better prepare themselves to meet the challenges of school and their future careers. Students will have fun while mastering new concepts and skills not ordinarily found at school. The topical focus of this program is home performance and urban sustainability.
Life Skills will prepare students to manage day-to-day interactions both personally and professionally.
Nationally recognized Technical Skills will prepare participants with the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities for a successful career in home performance and urban sustainability and to make informed analytical decisions about their future career path.
Leadership Skills will prepare young adults to navigate and overcome personal and professional obstacles in today’s challenging society.
Advocacy Skills can prove highly advantageous for individuals in a variety of situations, thereby enabling them to solve a wide range of urban sustainability problems faced by the society that envelopes them.
The program will take place over a period of four years. Each cohort will participate in a summer curriculum. In addition to the summer component, the program offers educational bridging activities during the academic year.
