Students Are “Seeing Green” as They Learn Job Skills and Save the Planet

The Y.A.L.E. School has entered into a new partnership with GreenVision®, a New Jersey-based non-profit offering students employment training and work skills in a growing area of the technology sector that benefits our planet and our communities. Students at Y.A.L.E.’s Northfield and Williamstown campuses are accepting old electronics – household appliances, computers, fax machines and other office equipment – in order to dismantle, sort and recycle the components. Not only are they keeping electronic waste out of landfills, they are earning a paycheck and gaining valuable work experience. To learn about this exciting new program, watch our video, and find out how you can donate your electronics, visit the Y.A.L.E. School GreenVision webpage.

After a short training period, eligible students will have the option to advance to jobs with increasing responsibilities. As part of the partnership with GreenVision ®, Y.A.L.E. students will also learn about sustainability and participate in yearlong environmental service-learning projects in the community.

GreenVision® is 99.7% landfill-free and has already recycled over 1,255,404 pounds of e-waste to date.
