LTE: Northwest Youth Corp worthy of write-up

Dear Editor,

This is in response to the story about Northwest Youth Corps in your Veteran’s Day issue. We were very glad to see the write-up and that the reporter had contacted Jeff Parker, the NYC director. It is a great group and provides much-needed work experience for teenagers and young adults. Our children and grandchildren have had very rewarding experiences, especially in the five-week camping in the woods program.

I should also mention that there are funds available to help low-income participants.
