Volunteer Opportunities:

 Gang Repression Intervention and Prevention Spokane (GRIP Spokane) Mentorship Program 

Purpose: to reduce crime, violence, and gang affiliation through intervention and prevention work that will strengthen families, improve school performance, reduce criminal activity, and promote pro-social development and success among youths and young adults aged 12-24.

The GRIPS evidence-based mentorship program enriches lives of youth and young adults who are at-risk of criminal behavior and gang affiliation by providing opportunities through job-skills training, business roundtables (BRT), as well as vocational, educational, and local diversion programs.

A mentor's mission is to engage and habilitate individuals in after-school programs, housing, food, legal, re-entry, mental health, substance abuse, and familial support services.

If you are interested in mentoring or know of someone in need of services, please call (509) 838-2799 
or write to GRIPSDirector@FulcrumDispute.com.

Annual Events:
We host appreciation events for our businesses that hire those with a conviction as well as the mentors that work with them.

Keep a look-out for monthly fundraising communal events to give back to our Spokane Community!
