Meet Bradly

Workforce Challenge

Bradly struggled with finding a job that interested and challenged him enough to remain interested. He frequently changed jobs in search of something that gave him a sense of accomplishment.

Workforce Solution

Bradly applied to serve with AmeriCorp where he was exposed to many different career paths. Bradly earned his S212 Chainsaw certification and had opportunities to speak with people in different career paths to get a better idea of what he wanted to do.

Outcomes & Benefits

Bradly worked with Colorado Youth Outdoors (CYO) during a Russian Olive Removal project, during which CYO was hosting a tree climbing training. Bradly enjoys the hard work associated with this field and a sponsor allowed him to sit in on the training. Within a week, an attendee gave Bradly an opportunity to work for them for a day to see if he liked it. The next day, Brad gave his team lead his two weeks notice for resignation, as he had been offered a job with Luke Glines Tree Experts.
