Partnership For Youth, Inc.
Between the fall of 2012 and the fall of 2015, 35 full-time St. Louis Safety Service Corps Emergency Response Team (ERT) members will leverage 2100 coordinated volunteers and alumni reservists to quickly support underserved and overwhelmed disaster affected communities. These resources will assist emergency management and disaster relief organizations to address immediate unmet needs and to develop an enhanced capacity resulting in effective long-term recovery especially for vulnerable populations. When not involved in this Disaster Response focus, the ERT will conduct community preparedness projects and undertake natural resource stewardship projects to benefit the environment. $453,250 in CNCS requested investment per year will be matched dollar for dollar with local funds to achieve desired results.
