On August 31, LICA Executive Director Marc Herbst was pleased to join members of United Way-Long Island (UW-LI) and many other labor leaders and elected officials at the new Jones Beach Nature & Energy Center to celebrate a new workforce development program. The program, entitled ‘Power Up Wind, Solar & Renewables’ was made possible thanks to a $250,000 grant from Bank of America-Long Island. The program will lay the foundation to train culturally diverse young adults on how to secure careers in the renewable energy industry. Herbst, who serves as a member of the UW-LI board, applauded the program, noting the importance of training new workers to be skilled in the future of infrastructure construction.
