Community Engagement, Energy Efficiency, Job Creation

WeatherizeDC is a program of The DC Project, a recently launched nonprofit that connects and empowers communities to secure a sustainable future shared by all. The program works with community leaders from across the city to ensure that the clean energy economy will direct economic opportunities to D.C. businesses and residents from communities of poverty and high unemployment.

For The George Washington University's Freshman Day of Service, GW students conducted volunteer energy audits around Washington DC, educating homeowners on the value of weatherization.
