Let’s be real, there are a lot of non-profits in Chattanooga needing support… So why support green|spaces?

  1. We’ve helped Thousands of Local Families learn Ways to Reduce their monthly Utility Bills.

    Rather than just providing utility payment assistance, we are teaching families how to prevent high utility bills all together.

  2. Our Build it Green Graduates, once at risk with uncertain futures, are now employed in careers including construction, community organizing and youth mentorship.

    Our 12-week paid program teaches soft skills that prepare trainees to become reliable and valued employees along with technical training including sustainable construction, OSHA 10 and LEAD Abatement certifications

  3. Our Chattanooga Green Prix is inspiring a new generation of engineers.

    Starting as young as age 9, students are designing, building and racing electric power race cars. They compete against teams from all across the Southeast for a chance to go to England for the International Race.

4. We are creating a culture of sustainability in Chattanooga.
