Harambee House, Inc. is gearing up for its annual Environmental Careers Worker Training Program (ECWTP). This federally certified training program — OSHA & HazMat certifications are earned by training graduates — is sponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and administered through Texas Southern University (TSU) and the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice (DSCEJ) in New Orleans,LA. The Center for Environmental Justice (CFEJ) at The Harambee House has worked with DSCEJ to successfully deliver this training for over twelve years. Participants receive training in OSHA Safety, HazMat Awareness and waste operations, lead abatement, mold remediation, asbestos removal, green construction and RRP (Renovate, Repair & Paint). Graduates receive federal certifications in each technical module when training is completed.
In addition, participants receive refresher coursework in math and reading skills, if required. Computer literacy, resume building, and job search techniques are provided through a skills development period given before the technical training. A Life Skills module is also delivered where interview techniques are modeled and practiced, and each participant is paired with a job placement specialist to ensure each graduate is placed in a job with a livable wage.
