Michael’s Testimonial:

Green City Force has taught me to be more independent, manage my time better and be a more hands-on worker. I chose to become a Corps Member for GCF because I wanted to give back to my community, become a better person, and learn about the green economy. Over the course of the six-month program, I have learned a vast amount of knowledge. One of my favorite experiences was hands-on training with Grid Alternatives, in which we learned how to install solar panels for low-income families. At first I was nervous about being on top of the roof but once I went up, I felt like the king of the world. I felt so accomplished and fulfilled with what I did that day.

Before joining GCF, I was looking for employment and filling out resumes. I spent most of my time at home watching TV. When I got bored I would go to the library, and draw cartoon characters. I would say I always wanted to be active and productive even when I couldn’t find anything to do.

The most important thing I have learned with GCF is that the work you put in results in bigger things and long-term success. I’ve seen Corps Members in my cohort doing bigger and better things due to their hard work, determination and willingness to persevere. I have also seen big changes in myself, such as having more leadership skills, becoming more focused and having fewer problems with procrastination. I would like to thank all of the GCF staff for letting us Corps Members never settle for less and making us keep going forward without quitting. To me, GCF means making positive change for the world and making it a safer environment so we can live to see another day. I am thankful for this experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
