The USGBC Green Veterans Group regenerate men and women who have served in the military for green jobs and green living. Veterans are reintegrated to a healthy lifestyle that focuses on green living and trauma resolution in the built environment, with emphasis on career development for green industry jobs and entrepreneurship. Our program participants receive on-the-job training for green industry professions by participating in veteran service-oriented projects with best inclass, proven community partners.
Being a change agent means you look for opportunities for improvement or Innovation. - (Emotionally Intelligent Leadership, Shankman & Allen)
Green Veterans are dedicated to helping our Nation's heroes learn about sustainable building and green living, while helping ease the hardship of military-to-civilian transition. By empowering Veterans to become volunteer leaders in their communities, we nurture opportunities for continuing education, networking, employment, corporate engagement and green entrepreneurship.
