The Blue Mountain Action Council (BMAC) 14-member AmeriCorps team helps to address the crucial needs of individuals and families throughout the Walla Walla valley. Members provide tutoring and behavioral support for academically and socially at-risk youth on a daily basis in the public schools in Walla Walla. The members also serve in other programs, including helping to develop health and education resources for youth as well as veterans and their families.
AmeriCorps members receive training, plan service projects, and recruit volunteers to help them carry out the projects. The member service projects include sorting food at the local food warehouse which is then distributed to the local emergency food pantries.
