  • About Us
    NEWESD 101's AmeriCorps State grant is funded through their Spokane Service Team program. This program consists of AmeriCoprs and YouthBuild, a work training program for youth working toward their GED. The YouthBuild participants are co-enrolled in AmeriCorps for the leadership and community service experience, and the opportunity to earn an education award. The Spokane Service Team also places full-time AmeriCorps members at partnering agencies, such as the West Valley Outdoor Learning Center, Greenhouse Community Center, and Spokane County Environmental Services Department.
  • Our Impact
    The Spokane Service Team's primary community focus is on education and low-income housing availability. The YouthBuild construction participants receive hands-on experience by working on the housing projects the city and other non-profit organizations have contracted us to complete. These projects usually consist of renovating abandoned homes for low-income families or individuals with disabilities. The YouthBuild participants also volunteer at the Habitat for Humanity site in Deer Park, where they are building a community of affordable homes for low-income families. The full-time AmeriCorps participants are typically placed at community sites that focus on education for children and youth, or support for homeless families and individuals in Spokane.
