The Mack Strong TEAM-WORKS Academy is a youth mentoring program coordinated by HOPE Worldwide – Washington. This program provides mentoring to members of the Tulalip tribe in three areas: the mind, body and character. The program serves up to 50 students, encouraging them to grow and mature in their choices in school, lifestyle choices, and health.
The AmeriCorps members serve on-site in the Mack Strong TEAM-WORKS facilities in Tulalip. Their responsibilities include tutoring in both math and reading, building social skills with the students, providing field trips for educational/team-building purposes, reporting students’ progression, and supporting various HOPE worldwide Days of Service in the state of Washington.
