On May  31, 2023, the latest cohorts of Thrive Works Green and Green Business Academy participated in a graduation ceremony 


This graduation ceremony commemorated the completion of our 8-week green jobs training program. It’s meaningful to these graduates for their hard work and dedication to the training program, but also for what it means for their lives going forward.

About half of these graduates were returning citizens. We know that having been previously incarcerated is an obstacle to gainful employment, and our TWG Cohort is a pathway to providing a stable life for these individuals and their families.

We extend our gratitude to the partners who make this program possible: JP Morgan Chase; W.K. Kellogg Foundation; Greater New Orleans Foundation; JOB 1; The City of New Orleans; The Kresge Foundation; New Orleans Business Alliance; Delgado Workforce.
