Spokane, WA – The Spokane Workforce Council (SWC) has been awarded two grants from Spokane County United Way that will support two of our centers, the Next Generation Zone and the Spokane Resource Center. The Next Generation Zone provides innovative career and education services to young adults ages 16-24, while the Spokane Resource Center provides a wide array of wraparound social services to low-moderate income individuals and families.
The $30,000 grant will be divided between each of the one-stop centers to connect its customers to the appropriate education and skills training that lead to family-sustaining wages. The grant will also provide general operating support to ensure the highest quality of service is provided to customers.
Additionally, the Next Generation Zone was nominated by a generous Starbucks Partner (employee) to receive a $1,000 grant as a part of their Starbucks Foundation and Neighborhood Grants program. Identified by the Starbucks Partner as important work delivered to the community, the Next Generation is excited to use the award to provide flexible support for program activities.
