City celebrates 14 years of job training program

CHICAGO Mayor Daley commended 33 graduates of the city's Greencorps job training program. The 14-year-old program offers ex-offenders job-training through workshops, technical assistance and educational programs.

The program also has a tremendous impact on the landscape of community and school gardens across the city, as well as many environmentally friendly projects.

Greencorps has helped build or maintain more than 300 gardens throughout Chicago.
