Greenwork is an education company serving people who want to roll up their sleeves and solve the climate crisis.
We provide free classes that teach you the hands-on skills you need to help transition our energy, transportation, food, and industrial systems to zero carbon.
Our instructors teach live to groups of students, keeping the material engaging and answering your questions in real time. Watch pros perform skills on the job site in videos and cement your knowledge with our challenges and assessments.
We connect our learners with the best companies in the industry to fill some of the fastest growing job categories in America. We try hard to provide job interviews to everyone who finishes a course.
Our courses are difficult; if you prove you’re a hard worker here, there are companies eager to hire you today.
To start, we are working with employers in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.
We offer courses to people already working in the industry to help them level up to new roles at work.
If you’re working in cleantech and think you and your team could benefit from a shared course, we’d love to hear from you.
We serve the people who are rebuilding our energy system from the ground up. We value diversity and inclusion. We’re eager to work with learners from all professional backgrounds and all genders, races, ages, veteran status, and sexual orientations.
3.5 million people work in clean energy today. That number is expected to triple in this decade. Our mission is to help you succeed!
