February 2023 – Maine State Update
February 22, 2023
BPA has partnered with the Maine Housing Coalition to build a future workforce with those who are considered Asylum Seekers, New Americans, those who are under the poverty income levels, and those who have been in Foster Care. Under this partnership, BPA will have a two-day class with State Outreach Coordinator Xavier Walter as the instructor for Building Principals and the Housing Coalition will provide the location, the food, and the interpreters for the course. We will work with BPI to discuss certification in other languages.
ReMaine’s first clean energy internship cohort will begin soon. ReMaine is a clean energy internship program funded by the Maine Governor’s Energy Office, in which the team will partner with Maine employers to place interns in paid, short-term jobs. This program seeks to create an entry point into the clean energy economy in Maine, with a particular focus on placing women and BIPOC participants.
