The U.S. Green Building Council and EcoRise Youth Innovations invite high school teachers and administrators interested in learning more about the green building industry to attend a FREE workshop and tour of the largest gathering of green building companies: Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, taking place in Boston this fall. 

Attendees will learn about a new high school curricular program, LEED Prep, and how they can prepare their students for careers in the booming green building industry. The workshop will include an overview of the content in the 7-module program, how each module connects to curriculum standards and various trades, and more about how to prepare students for the LEED Green Associate exam – a credential that showcases knowledge, experience and credibility in the green building marketplace. Additional resources will be shared to help teachers connect sustainability and green building to the classroom.
