Offshore wind offers the promise of both clean energy and thousands of good, high-paying, career-length jobs. Virginia stands at the forefront of this new American energy industry. According to Eileen Wolf, offshore energy program director for the Virginia Chapter of Sierra Club, our local community will benefit as new jobs are created. "With full build-out of offshore wind, an estimated 14,000 jobs will be created— many of which will be located in Hampton Roads," Wolf said.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the broad array of job opportunities for Virginians, and the educational and training programs supporting Virginia’s entrance into this new industry, in a series of webinars on May 21, May 27 and June 2, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm.
