Harambee House, Inc. presents its annual hazardous materials training program under its
Pathway to Prosperity initiative.
With vaccinations of the COVID-19 virus becoming more available across the nation, the Harambee House is pleased to resume its annual offering of its Worker Education & Job Training Program (WEJTP), which will run from May 17, 2021 until July 17, 2021.
The Southeast Worker Education & Job Training Program is based on the same curricula as the Environmental Careers Worker Training Program (ECWTP) and the Hazardous Waste Workers Training Program (HWWTP) sponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences under the umbrella of its Worker Training Program model.
“The Worker Training Program (WTP) provides health and safety training for thousands of workers who may be involved in handling hazardous materials or in responding to emergency releases of hazardous materials.”*
This program provides comprehensive training in environmental cleanup, construction, hazardous waste removal, lead paint abatement, asbestos removal and emergency planning and disaster response. This training results in each participant receiving federal certifications in hazardous waste awareness and mitigation, opening up an array of job opportunities. A primary aim of this program is to provide this training to underserved, marginalized, front line communities that suffer to a greater degree from hazardous pollution than other communities.
The Harambee House / Citizens for Environmental Justice has provided this training to Savannah communities for over 15 years. In that time, we have graduated over 350 participants with federal certifications and aided them in finding employment in various environmental fields with livable wages. In addition, we have provided over 6,000 hours of training from all programs combined.
