Our members come from across the state, nation, and beyond to serve the students of Pasco, WA. We represent rich cultural and ethnic backgrounds, diverse abilities, and incredible creative talent— and we serve that same diversity every day in schools. We’re on a mission to help the next generation find success and opportunity, while making national service accessible in the Tri-Cities community. Thoughtful and successful service wouldn’t be possible without the celebration and understanding of our differences.
It's for this we want to thank our Members— for bringing their whole, vulnerable selves to the team and to their service. Their desire and effort to participate and accept one another is what makes our team incredible. Their drive to be a better version of themselves in every moment is what allows us to be connected and beautiful. Their care to do no harm, to in fact inspire change and kindness and justice, is what calls us to service.
Our experiences make us who we are. Our diversity makes us strong. Our love for our community makes us AmeriCorps Members.
