Green Collar Jobs Program
The Green Collar Jobs Program (GCJP) utilizes the Fairbanks Rescue Mission Recycling Center as a vehicle for jobs-training and career counseling for Mission residents. Our goal is to empower and enable program participants to obtain sustained employment.
The principal goal of the Green Collar Jobs Program is to help our community's homeless and disadvantaged gain job skills and career counseling; however, from this goal stems the following positive outcomes:
Environmental: Reduces the amount of waste entering our landfills Conserves our natural resources Reduces energy consumption and pollution
Social: Provides job training and skill building for our community's homeless Provides a free recycling service for local businesses and residents Teaches the community about the merits of recycling and compassion for the disadvantaged
Economic: Provides a small return for the Fairbanks Rescue Mission Reduces landfill and solid waste costs for the Fairbanks Northstar Borrough
