Andrew Lewis, an alumni and now Team Leader here at Green City Force, was born and raised in New York City. Prior to joining GCF as a Corps Member, Andrew worked in retail but found no true opportunities for growth and development. Attending an info session is how he found out about the organization and got a small glimpse of what the green industry was and it immediately sparked an interest. During his six month term as a Corps Member he received hands-on training in the fields of construction and building science, and also professional and personal development. Upon graduation he committed to a second AmeriCorps term as one of GCF’s first Service Associates, working closely with a team leader where he learned team building and management skills that he put into use while working with Corps Members in the field.
