The Y Green Western Sydney project is a residential sustainability project where local young people are trained and then employed to conduct home sustainability assessments in their community. The assessments involve providing advice and information on household energy and water efficiency and the products that are available to reduce energy and water usage. The project is now looking to recruit participants for its next intake…
Are you a good communicator? And passionate about the environment? Are you 16 – 25 years old? Want to get paid to learn?
Can I get some training?
You’ll be trained as a Home Sustainability Adviser through a nationally accredited short course. You’ll complete the Course in Home Sustainability Assessment (21854VIC) which includes not only the technical information needed to complete a residential sustainability consultation, but also includes customer service skills, first aid, and occupational health and safety.
Is this a form of employment?
You’ll get paid for the training phase and to provide Home Sustainability Assessments to local households and offer advice to householders about what they can do to make their homes greener. And you’ll receive all the tools and training you need to do it. All Y Green Home Sustainability Advisers work in pairs. Most of the work is in the afternoons/evenings and weekends when most householders are at home.
