[Online] Building Worker Power in the Energy Economy

The Department of Education’s (DOE) Community Workforce Readiness Accelerator for Major Projects (RAMP) fellowship is a first-of-its-kind investment in local workforce development capacity building. The agency has launched a two-year fellowship opportunity available for candidates from a wide range of backgrounds to develop strategic workforce partnerships in their communities and meet the labor market needs for energy jobs in regions of significant DOE investment.

On June 4, join a webinar to learn more about the RAMP Fellowship and ask any questions you may have about the opportunity. Hear from DOE’s Betony Jones, Director of the Office of Energy Jobs, as well as leaders from the Good Jobs Collaborative, a coalition of organizations advocating for new workforce development policies that build worker power.

The opportunity to apply for the fellowship will close on June 30, 2024. Subscribe to New America’s Future of Work and Ed & Labor Bulletin newsletters for related research, writing, and events.
