Biden administration introduces the American Climate Corps, a path to climate tech skills and green jobs

The American Climate Corps, a new federal initiative, has been launched with the goal of training 20,000 young Americans in essential climate tech skills. President Joe Biden's commitment to this program dates back to his first week in office when he signed an executive order advocating for the development of such a job-training initiative.

Several states, including California, Colorado, Maine, Michigan, and Washington, have already implemented similar programs. While the American Climate Corps holds significant promise, many details, such as the budget, timeline, and collaborative strategies involving various stakeholders like Tribal, State, and local governments, labour unions, nonprofit service allies, the private sector, and philanthropy, remain undisclosed.
But key highlights of the program include ensuring compensation for all participants, offering a streamlined path into civil service, and prioritizing access to "good paying union jobs," though specifics regarding the latter are yet to be outlined. Do you have Climate Corps initiatives in your country? If given enough funding and resources this could be a game changer for the younger generations!
