Our programs focus on a variety of teaching techniques, including live projects. Students acquire skills in energy efficiency, renewable-energy technologies, and construction materials and methods associated with high-performance buildings. We are Asheville’s training center for renewable energy, advanced framing methods, green building, energy-auditing techniques, and software associated with building-energy analysis.
Green Opportunities (GO)'s mission is to train, support, and connect people from marginalized communities to sustainable employment pathways. In addition to technical training in construction and culinary arts, GO's holistic programs include wrap-around support services, high school equivalency classes, life skills training, counseling, and job placement assistance.
