Are you interested in an exciting career in sustainable energy?
We are looking for Crew Members to work on our Wayne, Mingo, and Lincoln County crews. This is a unique, challenging, and rewarding position for those interested in developing a career in the construction sector. Crew members participate in paid on-the-job training at our job sites while at the same time working towards an Associates Degree.
About the program
Our initiative aims to transform the lives of young people in the region and those displaced by the coal mining industry. Crew members participate in a workforce development program according to our 33-6-3 model: 33 hours a week are spent doing on-the-job training on new technology projects, along with participation in workshops and trainings; 6 hours a week are devoted to community college and business classes for an Associate’s Degree in Applied Sciences; and 3 hours a week are committed to personal development coaching. As a social enterprise, Rewire Appalachia strives to blend the efficiency and production of the for-profit sector with the compassion and purpose of the charitable sector.
About the training
Rewire Appalachia enhances the knowledge and skills of crew members through a network of training construction/installation sites. Crew members will experience various types of construction/installation and learn about sales, marketing, infrastructure and business planning for an enterprise. Crews are mentored by Crew Chiefs who are knowledgeable about construction/installation.
