Organization Summary 

The Center for Sustainable Careers (CSC) is a program of the non-profit Civic Works. CSC expands access to family-sustaining careers for Baltimore residents from historically marginalized communities. We support Baltimore residents in building the skills needed to secure quality employment, and employers around investing in their workers and advancing equity across their practices. CSC does this through a three-part model of hands-on learning, on-the-job training and job quality advancement. We have sector-based career tracks in solar installation and utility infrastructure. Each solar student completes paid on-the-job training (OJT) through CSC’s social enterprise. The job quality initiative then expands employment access and quality among partner employers by promoting the adoption of inclusive hiring policies, family-sustaining wages, equitable workplace practices, and career ladder strategies. This program model has proven powerfully successful. Since 2003, more than 1,000 people have graduated from CSC. The program maintains an average job placement rate of 90% and starting wages begin at $17 per hour.

The Center for Sustainable Career’ innovative work has been highlighted by the White House, the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, Green for All, The Baltimore Sun, The Washington Post, and the US Conference of Mayors. Join us in creating a more just and equitable green economy. For more information, please visit http://sustainablecareers.civicworks.com/.
