Solar One is partnering with the Newark Mayor’s Office Director of Sustainability and the Newark Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) to launch a Green Career Explorations program which blends green career readiness with hands-on activities, field trips, and local environmentally focused service learning projects for a group of Newark public high school students. This program builds on the design of the NYC CareerCLUE program.
Working with the Newark Public Schools, Solar One is also partnering with Central High School in Newark to deliver an environmental STEM course starting in September 2019. The course will be delivered to high school students enrolled in the new Environmental Studies Academy. The Environmental Studies Academy will be the first environmentally focused academy in Newark.
