Baltimore Center for Green Careers

Civic Works’ Baltimore Center for Green Careers is making Baltimore’s economy more equitable and sustainable by training residents for jobs in the emerging green economy. The combination of meaningful employment, a living wage, and marketable trade skills has proven powerfully successful. Our programs provide training in brownfields remediation and home energy efficiency. Participants earn industry-recognized certifications and receive job placement assistance. To date, 90% of graduates have secured employment earning between $12 and $16 per hour. Addressing Baltimore’s urgent need for good jobs that pay a living wage, the Baltimore Center for Green Careers has been transforming the local green economy into a pathway out of poverty since 2003.

The Center is home to the B’more Green Occupational Skills Training, the EnergyReady home performance social enterprise, and the Retrofit Baltimore demand generation program.
