NYS Workforce Development

What is workforce development?

The only way to create equitable change for workers is to offer them sufficient training and hands-on experience. As clean energy grows to become one of the biggest industries for employment, we’re providing workforce development opportunities. In doing so, we can train the new clean energy workforce, equipping individuals with the skills they need to succeed. At the same time, we are providing young people opportunities to learn about STEM occupations to give them the pathway toward a brighter future.

Through our goals, we are working to build a better, more prepared workforce. We aim to:

  • provide mentorship to clean energy workers
  • work with economic development organizations to support their local workers
  • provide education to increase opportunities in STEM occupations
  • provide employees with green technology job training to match the growing clean energy industry
  • offer New York State workforce development grants with our partners.

Working together for our workforce

To help fill the gaps in workforce and job training, we use our resources to support organizations like chambers of commerce and economic development committees to serve the most workers possible.
