The Community Education Response Team is a bit like the Marines.
They are looking for a few good men and women to work in the trenches when the going gets tough.
Like the Marines they are picky about whom they accept.
The do background checks.
They want you to speak Spanish as well as English.
The training requires a commitment and 10 Wednesday evenings.
Unlike the Marines, they won't pay you.
The satisfaction of helping your neighbors through what may be the worst period of their lives is all they offer in compensation.
