Meet Bradly

Workforce Challenge

Bradly was having difficulty in a tradition educational environment. He lacked the motivation and desire to continue his education after dropping out of high school and then met equal challenges in a non-traditional education program (GAP).

Workforce Solution

After joining AmeriCorps, a schedule was established for him to follow that balanced the service he performed as an AmeriCorps member with studying to obtain his GED. Bradly was held accountable for meeting time requirements in the lab and attending scheduled GED tests.

Outcomes & Benefits

On April 12, 2017, Bradly obtained his GED certificate. Bradly gained a greater self-respect that he can now pass on to his daughter. Paired with the AmeriCorps program's education award and Weld County's Bright Futures scholarship, Brad is now seeing higher education as a real possibility and has expanded his own perception of what opportunities he has.
