Curlew Job Corps pitches in on Spokane Humane Society makeover

Many volunteers have been helping with the extreme makeover at the Spokane Humane Society this week, including students with the Curlew Job Corps, who traveled three hours to help pitch in.

The Spokane Humane Society was bustling with activity as the Extreme Team worked on the interior of the building, and among the volunteers were the Curlew Job Corps.

“All this work what were doing is going to a good cause,” Andrew McArthrur with the Curlew Job Corps said.

Dozens of students from the Curlew Job Corps made the road trip over to Spokane to volunteer. The job corps is a no-cost education and career technical training program that helps young people ages 16 through 24 improve their lives through career technical and academic training.

“I found out about job corps through my high school principal, and she recommended it and I thought it would be a great opportunity and it has been so far, job corps has been great doing this at the Humane Society has been great, a great cause,” John Alsdorf with the Curlew Job Corps said.

These carpentry apprentice students got their hands dirty installing drywall and fiberglass panels among other things.

“It’s awesome. I love what the Humane Society does, they take in animals so they don’t have to be euthanized, its amazing what they do,” Tahkeim Pym with the Curlew Job Corps said.

These students say they’re excited to be out of Curlew and helping out for a good cause.

“I’m enjoying myself I like being out in the actual field of work and not cooped up on a center,”Pym added.
