We are pleased to introduce the 2021 Opportunity Northeast fellows. (From left to right, top to bottom)

Caleb Yoder '22 and Georgia Cosola '22, are the Food Security fellows. They will support the Campus Kitchens food security programs in Northeast Spokane, as well as support meal preparation, grow fresh produce in the Campus Kitchens garden, facilitate nutrition education programming for youth, engage with seniors through meal distributions, and interact with various partners engaged in community development efforts

Charlotte Low '22 and Ally Schmidt '22 are the Hillyard Youth Collaborative Fellows. They will support youth involved in the Hillyard Youth Collaborative during the summer months. Fellows recruit and enroll youth and facilitate programming for Level Up, a two week transition program for youth entering middle school, and Summer in the Zone, a 10 week long initiative that provides multi-age programming for youth in Northeast Spokane.

Aaliyah Mae Lewis ‘24 and Mateo Acosta ‘21 are the High School Transition Fellows. They will support youth in their transition to high school by coordinating teacher meet ups, tours of the building and classrooms, informing students on available resources, and coordinating with coaches and clubs that students are interested in during the summer months.

Skye Clark ‘22, Hanah Singco ‘22, Meaghan Greaney ‘23 and Jessica Gutierrez ‘23 are the Rogers High School Postsecondary Summer Outreach fellows. They will provide outreach and support to recently graduating seniors with postsecondary plans (Technical School, 2-Year, or 4-Year college). These fellows work with John R. Rogers High School administrators and counselors to follow-up with recent graduates and learn what support they might need as they make plans for their transition to post-secondary programs.

During their work Fellows expect to develop an understanding of the community needs and assets of Northeast Spokane.
