eCUSE launches this month

eCUSE -- The Environmental Collaborative for Urban Sustainable Employment -- launches this month, supported by a $3.7 million US Department of Labor grant.  The project, which builds on the efforts of two collaborative groups, Journey to Jobs and Greater Syracuse Works, is one of a small select group to be funded nationally.  It will build on the capacity of a coalition of partner organizations committed to increasing employment options in green technology for targeted workers living in the Syracuse urban center.  In addition, the initiative will develop a pipeline of talent for Syracuse's burgeoning green industries. The goal of the program is to serve 1,000 prospective workers through interdisciplinary teams, working in partnership with neighborhood organizations.  More information on the eCUSE Initiative is available at:  CNY Works.
