Get Involved: Community Based Organizations & Offshore Wind
Are you a New Jersey Community-Based Organization or non-profit organization interested in workforce training opportunities in the clean energy economy for the communities you work with? Join NJEDA and the Governor’s Office of Climate Action for a two-part virtual program to learn about offshore wind in New Jersey and share your recommendations on the best ways to engage and support local communities in the growing offshore wind workforce. Session 1 (June 14), Offshore Wind 101, will provide NJ non-profits and CBOs with an overview of the offshore wind industry in New Jersey, including the basics around offshore wind energy, the timing of different projects, and an overview of the different kinds of jobs that this new industry will require. Session 2 (June 21) will provide an opportunity for CBOs and non-profits to share feedback and to dialogue with the State on how to expand workforce training and family sustaining job opportunities in this growing industry.
