Tualatin Riverkeepers (TRK), Centro Cultural, Muslim Educational Trust and Oregon Community Trees would like to announce year two of our exciting new jobs training opportunity for our community. In Fall 2017, we will launch another introductory training for jobs in environmental careers, specifically for Urban Forestry. Urban Forestry is the study of designing, installing, and managing trees in an urban and semi-urbanized landscape.
Urban Foresters are jobs that are in demand because small and large businesses as well as cities and public agencies employ urban foresters to design and install trees on their properties. This includes restaurants, corporate industrial facilities, malls and city parks to name a few.

Job Trainings:
Trainings will be structured around a group of 6 students competitively chosen from community consultations facilitated by Centro Cultural and Muslim Educational Trust (MET). 3 students will be trained at Centro Cultural and 3 students will be trained at MET simultaneously. Trainings will give students knowledge of diverse job skills needed in Urban Forestry, while also giving them exposure to experts in urban forestry who will present lectures and offer good networking connections for students.

Courses will be taught from 6:00 - 8:00 pm (with field practicum) weekly during Fall 2017-Winter 2018 and students will be reimbursed $10/hour for attendance at these trainings. This will be followed-up by 100 hours of paid on-the-job training intended to apply skills learned with employers through TRK's network of urban forestry professionals. Transport stipends for buses to training will also be considered. Beyond the cohort of 6 students, the coursework is also open to the general public with a focus on Centro/MET's focal communities.
