They believe that alternative energy will become more than an alternative. Today’s job shortage in alternative energy for college students will reverse, becoming a talent shortage tomorrow. This talent shortage will be a problem for alternative energy and an opportunity for forward-thinking university students. They intend to help solve the industry’s problem by helping students see and prepare better for the opportunity.

theGREENprogram
(Not Funded by FESC)

30 S. 15th St, 15th Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19102
At theGREENprogram they have identified a gap between the traditional textbook educational model and direct career advancement. They have found that traditional study abroad programs have become so long and expensive that students in course-intensive majors cannot participate without falling behind in their studies. So the Green Program was created, where the words of a traditional textbook knowledge jump off the page and into the minds and hearts of our students through hands-on education at functioning renewable energy facilities and sustainable site visits. Where studying abroad means less than two weeks of intensive education, adventure excursions, cultural experiences, and service learning projects. And where students become inspired in their field of study and return home emerging as leaders who put their ideas into immediate action at their home College, University, or community. The GREEN Program is dedicated to accelerating engaging careers for today’s students to transition into tomorrow’s socially responsible, innovative, green conscious, leaders of the world.

Volunteers enjoy an unforgettable experience and recipient communities in Peru are provided with free electricity to power lights, computers or other electrical items to help improve the standard of living, improve teaching conditions and support the start-up and growth of small businesses. Working with the recipient community, through training and preparation, they help to ensure the wind turbines operate for their entire design life of 20 years and continue to bring the benefits that electricity can provide.
