The Energy Workforce Equity Portal is an online source designed to help connect clean energy companies with equity eligible persons looking to work in the clean energy sector in Illinois. Making these connections is a key aspect of ensuring that the clean energy industry in Illinois grows in an equitable manner.
Equity Eligible Persons can use this portal to post their availability to entities seeking to hire Equity Eligible Persons, and developers of clean energy projects (such as Approved Vendors and Designees in the Adjustable Block Program, or developers of utility-scale wind and solar projects) can use this portal to post clean energy jobs and to search for Equity Eligible Persons.
FIFTY+ is a program specifically designed to help women age 50 and older enter or re-enter the workforce. Research shows that older women face special challenges in their job search. But we also know that age plus experience equals success!
The program is offered monthly to cohorts of 10-15 women who meet twice per week for two weeks. Through a targeted mix of intensive coaching and training, participants will identify areas of career interest, update their resumes, practice interviewing skills, learn or improve computer skills, and develop a plan for finding work and establishing careers.
The Endeleo Institute has been awarded a TRIO Education Opportunities Centers (EOC) grant by the US Department of Education. Until now, their focus was on K-12 grades, but they are now equipped to assist qualified children and adults.
The adult TRIO (EOC) program provides educational counseling and guidance on college and trade school enrollment to qualified Chicago area adults 19 years or older, who desire to enter or continue a program of post-secondary education at no cost.
For more than 30 years, Project Prepare® has helped students focus on the development of current and future career interests. The program, offered to juniors and seniors at three Chicago high schools, pairs youth with Career Specialists who guide them through individualized activities and coach them on developing job readiness skills.
