We got trained to respond to

We got trained to respond to things like Hurricanes and tornadoes. Some people chose to work in things like literacy promotion for at risk youth or environmental programs. The issue is you get paid a teeny stipend from the government (yes that is why the program probably could go). It was basically young people trying to serve the country in a way other than armed forces.
