Blue Mountain Action Council AmeriCorps
AmeriCorps has been defined as a domestic Peace Corps – improving community, changing lives.
Each year, AmeriCorps offers 75,000 opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve through a network of partnerships with local and national nonprofit groups. Whether your service makes a community safer, gives a child a second chance, or helps protect the environment, you'll be getting things done through AmeriCorps! AmeriCorps members address critical needs in communities all across America.
BMAC AmeriCorps works to address crucial needs throughout Walla Walla County. The local program is comprised of committed, talented individuals seeking to change community. We have several exciting projects to choose from: provide tutoring and behavioral support for academically and socially at-risk children and youth; youth and family advocacies; volunteer recruitment, and environmental education.
AmeriCorps members receive training, plan service projects and recruit volunteers to help them carry out the projects. The service projects vary from picking up litter on an adopted section of highway to sorting food at the local food warehouse that later distributes it to the local emergency food pantries.
