About this course

Welcome to Footprint Project's volunteer training courses! Footprint Project is a registered 501c3 that focuses on providing cleaner energy to communities after crisis. Climate change drives emergency humanitarian need but relief and recovery is carbon intensive. We focus on building back greener and providing cleaner options to disaster relief.

Throughout this training you will learn more about Footprint Project as an organization, learn about solar energy and mobile solar generators, and learn about how we activate our equipment after a time of crisis. The objective of these trainings is to familiarize you with our mission and work so you can later help us deploy on the ground.
