green-jobs-green-collar-blue-collarNEW Click Here to read about the past SuperJTI program featuring  graduates cleaning up T-­‐117!

DRCC/TAG partnered with EPA’s Superfund Job Training Initiative to provide free river cleanup job training and placement assistance to qualified local residents.

Thank you to all who participated in the Duwamish Superfund Jobs Training Initiative. Over 60 people applied to the program and 14 participants were selected and graduated in June! Graduates completed 36hrs of pre-employment training as well as professional certifications including OSHA 10, HAZWOPER and CPR!

Graduates received six months of job placement support to facilitate the transition into career track positions in local environmental cleanup. Participating contractors were hiring for work on the Duwamish. Several of our graduates had been selected for interviews and hired for positions working directly on the cleanup actions.

We are proud of our graduates and can’t wait to see what roles they will play in the future!
