AmeriCorps members serving with Pima Prevention Partnership, Tucson, participated in several service projects alongside volunteers at Flowing Wells High School. Members spent their day removing books from the library, cleaning the bookshelves, organizing the books by the Dewey Decimal system, organizing the computer lab and painting the exterior classroom doors.
