Molis studied medicine in his home country of Haiti, stopping his studies when he had to leave for the United States. Molis came to CASA for help with a job.  CASA launched a new clean energy program to teach new skills and gain employment. Because Molis had worked with construction before and had the skill set to be a teacher, he was a good fit for the Building Green Futures program. Now as a graduate, Molis looks forward to this new opportunity and putting his new skills into practice.

Melissa became aware of our Building Clean Energy Program through a post on CASA’s Facebook page. Melissa is a mother to seven children and wants to provide new opportunities for her family. Melissa has a background in construction and wanted to further her skills. This program allows Melisa to expand her skills and dive into a new work field. She is forging a new path for Hispanic immigrant women in the Clean Energy Field.
