New manpower for green industry

(KTSF by Hellas Leung)

Today  was  the graduation ceremony for twenty students who have  been trained in  green construction from  the  Asian Neighborhood Design’s Employment Training Center (ETC) in San Francisco.    

The goal of the center is to prepare at-risk  youth  and young adults  enter the job market and improve their career opportunities.

One graduate says,  ”This is a really good opportunity to better myself, and our community .  I really appreciate the opportunity to be here and be part of the future.”

The  Executive Director of Asian Neighborhood Design,  Steven Suzuki, says graduates have a better understanding of “green”  before getting hired.

Each year, up to 60 graduates gain comprehensive skills in construction and carpentry as well as basic education.
