Nearly 3,000 Hawai‘i workers will be trained for high-demand jobs in clean energy, creative industries, health care and technology sectors statewide over the next three years due to a $16.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The “Resilient Hawai‘i: Good Jobs Challenge” initiative includes a coalition of more than 70 employers, training providers and community-based organizations to get local residents back to work or increase their skills for new employment.
The initiative aims to help those who lost their jobs due to COVID-19, as well as Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities who can earn certificates leading to higher-paying jobs, said UH President David Lassner in a press release.
