Green STEP (Sustainability Technical Education Program) is an Energize Connecticut collaborative for Connecticut technical high school students in the construction career cluster that's designed to prepare them for green-industry jobs.

Three milestones per year for four years bridge concepts of sustainability, energy efficiency, renewables, and green building.

CT-Clean-Trades-Norwich-Tech-v2Students will bring the sustainable building and technology concepts they learn in the classroom into the field, where they will work with industry experts.

Career Tech students will:

  • Develop a foundation for sustainable building
  • Complete industry-recognized certification programs
  • Gain awareness of career options in the green industry
  • Be positioned for employment or higher education

The Green STEP program is a partnership of EnergizeCT, the Connecticut Technical High School System, Eversource, the United Illuminating Company, and the CBIA Education & Workforce Partnership.

The program is funded by a grant from Eversource and United Illuminating.
