Support Our Newest Initiatives
Through our Solar Corps initiative, and as part of our Rise Up Midwest! public education campaign and call to action, MREA is partnering with four organizations dedicated to environmental and climate justice to bring industry leading solar technical training and workforce development opportunities to their members and communities.
Our partner organizations serve low to moderate income communities in Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin. This program is intended to support workforce development efforts and expand employment access in advanced energy by providing renewable energy training scholarships and paid solar internships to students, as well as instructor and curriculum support to partnering businesses.
Help us grow this program and put the good people of the Midwest to work!
All donors contributing $100+ will also receive one free Rise Up Midwest t-shirt! (Shipping not included.)
