John’s Testimonial:

Green City Force is a movement that makes changes for the young adults involved in the program, and the people and communities around the five boroughs. It’s a way to gain and enhance skills for the job market and to further the education of your choice. I chose to become a Corps Member with GCF for college preparation and for the doors it would open up for different opportunities. What impacted me the most about GCF was learning that global warming is real, and it’s causing a climate change crisis in the world we live in. Nothing lasts forever, so living a more sustainable life will save resources for future generations. Our daily activities affect the ozone layer by burning fossil fuels that send toxins into the air, such as carbon dioxide. This fact makes me more inclined to limit our ways of spending our precious resources and becoming more energy efficient. I would like to thank everyone who helped me during this stage of my life to make me who I am today. Through my trials and tribulations I’ve become stronger and wiser. Thank you to GCF’s great staff members, who helped me strive for the better and gave me a chance to continue to prove myself to the world.

Joining Green City Force was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. GCF has helped me develop important skills such as interpersonal communication, teamwork and professionalism strengths. During my time at GCF, I was placed in situations where I had to convince a person to give me some of their time to educate them on how to be more environmentally-friendly. This can be quite challenging for an introverted person, especially in this fast-paced city. I have been challenged in every way possible in this program. I’ve tried things I haven’t done before. If I could summarize GCF in a few words I would say it’s career and life bootcamp. It’s human nature to be afraid of change, but GCF helped me fight that fear, and now I’m ready for life’s challenges.
