Overview

Explore a career in weatherization in this central hub for job seekers, contractors, and others to learn about weatherization careers and connect directly with weatherization employers in their area.

Green Workforce Connect aims to hire a new generation of Home Energy Professionals for a rapidly expanding energy industry sector through awareness-raising activities and the connection of students, job seekers, and contractors to local weatherization training providers and employers.

Green Workforce Connect is an initiative led by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), a national nonprofit that builds the foundation for rapid adoption of clean energy and energy efficiency to benefit people, the economy, and our planet. IREC developed this project in collaboration with leading national, state, and local partners, Weatherization Assistance Program stakeholders, community-based organizations, and a project Advisory Group. This work is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) State and Community Energy Program’s (SCEP) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP).

Our work has a strong focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility that is guided and informed by an Advisory Group to ensure the future weatherization workforce includes more women, youth, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), along with other underrepresented populations and members of disadvantaged communities.
