Eco-Industry Apprenticeships and Internships
Matter of Trust is a strong advocate for apprenticeship and Internship programs and recognizes the importance of exposing youth to new and innovative career paths.
We want to ensure a future where large inner-city populations make leaping advances in green building, eco-packaging, smart urban farming, clean air and water, fair trade product manufacturing, waste-stream diversion, new energy sources, and storage…
Apprentices in our programs learn about materials collection, sorting, renewables, manufacturing, composting, high-tech and low-tech design and implementation, internet presence, exhibits and eco-education, perspectives, incentives, roundtables, sales, marketing, and research.
We have seen sectors like the textile trade dwindle in the US before our very eyes. And we know there are great benefits to keeping such industries alive so we encourage adopting the competitive edge through sustainable practices.
The US is not currently a leader in manufacturing but it can still be a trailblazer in the fair trade and buy local movements.
We are proposing an Eco-Industrial Revolution where local production, manufacturing, design, and creativity make a comeback and provide safe, healthy and accessible apprenticeships to youth looking for guidance in careers.
