GTECH Strategies is taking applications through the end of this month from Northsiders to participate in its Green Ambassadors program. The application can be linked to at this site.

This is the second round, and it will focus on vacant property. The Northside program is a pilot that GTECH hopes to take citywide.

Those selected will participate in a series of training sessions on vacant land issues and learn about how assessment, current legislation, community organization and available funding can affect it. Participants will be paid a stipent and get techncial assistance and funding to implement a Northside-based green project.

First-round participants were interviewed for this video.
