Giving life-long skills through real work, parenting, counseling and family-based networking
In a recent effort to shed more light on various charitable programs in the Virgin Islands, we had the opportunity to meet with my brother’s workshop owner and program directors. We wanted to share with you this influential organization and all the exciting stories we have had with them.

How my brother’s workshop started
Shortly after moving to St. Thomas 13 years ago, his wife, Scott Bradley, noticed the need for youth counseling programs on the Virgin Islands. With his spirit, engineering, architecture, social work experience, and, occasionally, another revolt against St. Thomas, my brethren ‘workshop idea was born. He knows that children are Scott to learn real-world skills outside of the traditional classroom that will help them find successful jobs. He had many experiences and desires to teach that. It all started with a boy who was interested in helping to repair a church in St. Thomas’.
My brother’s workshop today
Snowball continues to thrive, and today each year they help about 150 children and adults at St. Thomas and St. Croix. The program includes a workshop in the Tutu area, a cafe in downtown Charlotte, a workshop on St. Croix, and online handicrafts. My brother’s workshop provides skills development for children and adults with the support of educators, staff, mental health counselors, a network beyond the graduation program and to people in the local community and beyond.
