Since 2000, Climate Careers has operated as a highly innovative youth empowerment program, addressing climate change by employing youth to provide energy efficiency services to over 50,0000 Northern California residences. We train and employ Bay Area and San Joaquin youth to conduct Green House Calls in their home communities.

At each Green House Call, a team of two youth Energy Specialists arrive for a pre-arranged appointment to check the home’s efficiency, install energy and water-saving equipment, and provide personalized recommendations for further resource savings. The Energy Specialists install equipment as needed, such as energy-efficient light bulbs, high-efficiency faucet aerators for bath and kitchen, shower heads, and more – all at absolutely no cost to the resident.
