It’s a program that hires youth aged 15-22 to do free “green house calls” in their communities. They go into people’s homes to evaluate energy and water efficiency, and then help install things like water-saving shower heads, or compact fluorescent&nbsp;light bulbs. Horace is 22, and this is her third summer working for the CYES site in Berkeley and Emeryville. She says that, at first, she was worried about talking to strangers, but now she really likes meeting new people, and helping them become more green.</p><p> Wed, 28 May 2014 02:01:00 +0000 Jen Chien 33632 at http://kalw.org Green pathways to youth employment Audiograph's Sound of the Week: UC Berkeley Campanile http://kalw.org/post/audiographs-sound-week-uc-berkeley-campanile <p></p> Fri, 14 Mar 2014 00:50:00 +0000 Jeremy Dalmas 40915 at http://kalw.org Audiograph's Sound of the Week: UC Berkeley Campanile Do you know the way to Ocean View?
