Read Earlton’s employment testimonial below:

“I decided to apply for this {construction} training because I was interested in construction and wanted to absorb any knowledge that was offered. I entered the training hoping to become a basic laborer, but through the classes discovered how much I am interested in electricity. I heard about Local 3 and how I could be an apprentice in the training, so it was really my launching pad for joining the union.” 

Read Earlton’s graduation testimonial below:

“To me, Green City Force has been a good opportunity to work on myself and see what it is I want to do. Before GCF I was doing a lot of customer satisfaction work which I was not interested in at all. I chose to be a Corps Member because I felt it would be a good opportunity to learn about something I was interested in and also help the community. One of the most important things I learned from GCF is to be more confident in myself. I always was, but now it’s in a more professional setting. After GCF I plan to apply all the knowledge I learned along the journey and continue to help people if I can.”
