Illinois Green Economy Network Career Pathways (IGEN)

The Illinois Green Economy Network Career Pathways initiative will engage 17 “hub” Illinois community colleges located in areas affected by foreign trade consequences. After building adult transition services, the hub colleges will develop comprehensive training programs in eight green economy industries, employing delivery via online and hybrid (combining online and classroom). These programs will be replicated by other implementing IGEN community colleges, serving the entire state through local and online delivery. Materials will use the open platforms from the Department of Energy NTER and the new AACC VCN (supported by Department of Labor); the project's outcomes have potential to reach TAA workers and others nationally.
