Bronzeville Green was founded in 2008 by The Renaissance Collaborative as a social enterprise that facilitated a transitional job training program. It was designed to help TRC tenants and community residents to obtain the next level of self sufficiency, employment and independence, by providing them with an opportunity to build a job history and acquire basic job skills. The original aim of the Bronzeville Green was to provide tenants with a credible employment history and marketable job skills so that they could more easily re-enter the job market.
Today Bronzeville Green has grown into a full service, for-profit landscaping company, with a social mission that lives on. We continue to recruit, train and employ individuals who would have typically faced barriers to employment. Willing and hardworking individuals with criminal histories, limited education, limited employment history and minimal employable skills are welcomed into TRC's landscaping training. Bronzeville Green recruits its employees from this application pool, helping to give workers a credible and quality work history.
Our company uses professional best practice techniques to provide our commercial grounds maintenance services and environmentally friendly trash removal services. Our company only contracts with environmentally friendly waste removal contractors to reduce waste and in all appropriate situations recycle trash and debris material. Indeed, for our commitment to excellence, the environment, and green collar job creation we were awarded the 2009 Environmental Hero Award, Gov. Pat Quinn, State of Illinois. Our landscapers and grounds maintenance technicians go through an enhanced customer service training, grounds maintenance training, tool usage and safety's training, and have had experience in dealing with community residents, neighborhood businesses, and other collaborators on grounds maintenance projects. At BG we provide top-notch customer service and best practice environmental services for customers large or small scale. Bronzeville Green employs environmentally friendly landscaping practices, always keeping in mind our triple bottom line: people, environment and efficiency.
Based on the continued success of Bronzeville Green, we at TRC are convinced that given the right resources and funding, this program equips its participants not only with employable skills, but also the confidence to face the challenges of a competitive job market.
The diagram represents the stakeholders in our business model. Bronzeville Green is an incredible way for community stakeholders to mutually benefit by partnering with our organization to contribute to the Bronzeville community, its economy, and the revitalization of its less fortunate residents.
