Workforce Development

Each year KNOX provides green jobs training and career readiness to residents in Hartford. Members take part in horticultural training and life skills workshops before advancing to further educational and employment opportunities.

Our Green Jobs Apprenticeships Program provides a 16-week professional skills training program to Hartford young adults that gives them the work experience, technical skills, and certifications needed for full-time employment in an industry that is currently hiring.

Each season KNOX welcomes 2 Classes of Apprentices who are all adults ages 18 to 30 and not in school. All earn a living wage while learning how to plant and maintain hundreds of trees, 21 community gardens, and how to service landscaping accounts to KNOX Customers.

The Golf Crew (Tier 2) will work at Goodwin and Keney golf courses to gain hands-on experience and training in golf course maintenance.
