Enroll Today-Energy Masters Training Begins Soon!

There's still time for Alexandrians to join Energy Masters - the award-winning program, which trains volunteers in energy efficiency, water conservation, and community education and outreach. Alexandria joins program partners Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE), Arlington Thrive, and Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) in developing a corps of volunteers who, upon completion of an extensive training program, will engage in 40 hours of community service over the course of a year.

Now in its fifth year, the program has trained more than 120 volunteers, who have provided thousands of hours of community service to improve the lives of more than 480 families living in affordable housing developments.

The program is accepting applications for community and student apprentice volunteers for the fall training program, which starts in  late September.  The student apprentice program is open to college students and high school students ages 16 and over. Information is available atwww.ArlingtonEnvironment.org/energy.

The program, created by ACE in partnership with VCE and Arlington Thrive, is funded with support from the Arlington County Community Development Fund, the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy, the Arlington County Department of Environmental Services and the City of Alexandria.  Affordable housing and social services partners include AHC, Inc., the Arlington County Department of Human Services, and the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority.
