Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak (pictured above, far right) was just one of several speakers at a July 27 event held at Dunwoody College celebrating the work of RENEW (Renewable Energy Networks Empowering Workers). Funded by a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Labor, RENEW helped more than 580 Twin Cities residents get training for green careers. Dunwoody Custom Training & Continuing Education was one of several organizations that helped provide training.
In addition to the celebration, a job fair was held for RENEW participants. For more details, view the City of Minneapolis news release and today’s story in the Downtown Journal (final item).
