"I was pleased to join Generation NEXT Energy Pros to speak to students at the various HVAC and technical schools explaining the benefits of a future career in the energy industry as a technician or driver. As a direct result, 24 students expressed their interest in an internship and future employment opportunity with local companies in their area. This is exactly what the industry needs!"
General Manager, Milro Group
"Thank you for having me join you at the Woonsocket Vo Tech School and the Providence Vo Tech School. It was great to have the chance to speak to young people who might not have heard about our industry or considered a career in this field. Before we started the first presentation, only one student thought about a career in the industry, after our presentation six students came up and asked lots of good questions. I found that this experience will start to change the mindset of our industry and our future workforce will be reached! I found the experience to be wonderful and would do it again in a second."
Director of HVAC and Green Energy, SUNY Sullivan
"This program bridges the gap between industry and academics while providing my students with not only real-world, hands-on experience, which is very important, but the opportunity to find a rewarding career immediately upon graduation. That's what's most encouraging for both me and my students."
Career Coordinator, Woonsocket Area Career and Technical Center
“At the beginning of the Bioheat and HVACR presentation, there were no students that raised their hand to show they were thinking about a career in the oil industry. Generation Next Energy Pros helped to open the students' eyes to the different companies and career paths available to them upon graduation from a career and technical high school. The industry professionals provided dynamic insight into the state of the industry and the opportunities available through personal development in the field. By the end of the presentation, multiple students showed interest in a career in the oil industry.”
