Project Challenges The employment landscape has been challenging due to the shifting economy. The educational level of many applicants has dictated a shift in the original approach to invest more resources in remedial education programs. Availability of night time courses has been a challenge due to a lack of instructors. Job placement of ex-offenders has proved challenging. Identifying employers willing to be apprenticeship sponsors is more difficult in this economy.

Green Jobs Definition 31 In analyzing and organizing Green Jobs, we follow the definition and occupational categories used in a report* sponsored by the US Department of Labor: "The Green Economy encompasses the economic activity related to reducing the use of fossil fuels, decreasing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, increasing the efficiency of energy usage, recycling materials, and developing and adopting renewable sources of energy."
