Environmental Innovations helped establish training programs at Cabrillo and Foothill Colleges to provide opportunities to under-employed, low-income, minority individuals and women, as well as at-risk youth. The program works to add a workforce development element to every environmental initiative taking place locally and grow the green economy.
