Survey Reports Success For the Alliance to Save Energy

by Green Jobs Ready on May 23, 2011

According to a press release sponsored by PRNewswire earlier this month, the Alliance to Save Energy’s Green Campus program has produced fruitful results for the various alternative energy industries. The Green Campus program, which allows for college students to pursue internships during which they advocate green energy and green jobs on various college campuses throughout the nation, has been found to produce an 83 percent green job retention rate, in that this percentage represents that percentage of former interns who claim they are currently holding what constitutes a “green job.”

Perhaps even more notable than this sky-high number is the number of campus interns who claim that participation in the Alliance to Save Energy’s Green Campus Program has encouraged them to take part in and promote activities to “support sustainability,” which comes in at a whopping 98 percent.

“These findings are significant,” Alliance Senior Director of Education Jo Tiffany is quoted in the press release as saying. “Even when national unemployment remains high, Green Campus interns are finding meaningful jobs in which they can advance energy efficiency. In addition, encouraging college grads to undertake careers that advance energy efficiency is a top Green Campus Program goal.”

The press release also states that those students involved with the Alliance to Save Energy’s Green Campus program issue a variety of classes, trainings, and volunteer opportunities for green education to those in their respective campus communities.
