ORGANIZER: Common Ground
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2015
I am raising money for Green Jobs Corps, a leadership development and paid environmental internship program open to Common Ground High School students. The goals of the program are to provide members with a solid foundation for successful future employment and the skills necessary to advance in their careers.
What do students say about this program?
- "GJC is a learning experience that teaches you skills for life and helps improve the skills that you already have. It is a great way to get connected with yourself, your fellow classmates and the community."
- "Because of GJC I'm better at working effectively with diverse teams, using different perspectives to increase innovation and work quality, and having the willingness to make necessary compromises to accomplish a common goal."
- "It has taught me valuable life skills that I will definitely use in the future. It also helped me with furthering my ability to get jobs because of the connections I was able to establish."
The money you donate today will help fund this program; ensuring that young people are given opportunites to obtain paid jobs and gain valuable work and life experience.
Thank you for your generosity and support for Common Ground Green Jobs Corps members!
