On October 3rd, Seattle City Council Members passed the Young Leaders Green Pathways Resolution!
This work could not have been done without all of you.
Now let’s move this resolution into action!
The resolution outlines $150K which would staff an inter-departmental team. This inter-departmental team would create systems to break the green ceiling and recruit, retain, and foster low income young adults of color in the green jobs field. In addition this $150K would fund the creation of a green jobs inventory. This inventory would allow the public to know what, if any, green jobs are available that follow the more comprehensive green jobs definition outlined in the resolution.
