EarthCorps is a community service organization based in Seattle. An arm of AmeriCorps, it sends young people on year-long environmental projects. Two-thirds of EarthCorps members are from the US, but the rest are from abroad. They come to the NW to do ecological restoration work, but to learn preservation skills they can take home with them. While in Seattle, foreign EarthCorps volunteers stay with families in the area. One of those families is the Sargents. Kayla Sargent has this profile of EarthCorps International.
