Weatherization Training For Area Non-Profit Organizations

Posted by on January 5, 2009

Free Weatherization Training For Area Non-Profit Organizations!

The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service is recruiting representatives from non-profit
organizations to receive a free weatherization training. You will be able to take what you’ve learned about
keeping a home warm this winter and share it with your clients. No experience required to participate!

Winter is here and heating costs are an issue for many individuals and families, especially those on a fixed income. However, by weatherizing a home and reducing the use of heat, you can help the residents in your
community save 5% – 20% in energy costs!

Learn How To Help Your Clients Stay Warm This Winter

On January 19, 2009 as part of the King Day of Service, you can learn how to provide weatherization assistance and conservation education to vulnerable households (i.e. the elderly, disabled, homebound, families with infants and children) across the region.

Join Us and Volunteer Today!

You will be trained on basic weatherization techniques and conservation applications. Weatherization activities will include installing weather stripping, plastic over windows, and caulking around windows and doors. You can take this information and share it will your clients!

A limited number of window insulation kits and blankets will be provided to each agency after the training!

The non-profit agency training will be held on
January 19, 2009
Temple University’s Liacouras Center
1776 North Broad Street
Philadelphia PA 19122
