National Service in Montana, Impact and Benefits

  • Posted by MCC

Nearly 10,000 National Service members mobilize Montana’s human capital to meet local needs.

• 2,000 organizations - nonprofits, schools, faith-based, tribal, government - host national service members to tutor and mentor children, support veterans and military families, provide health services, restore the environment, respond to disasters, increase employment opportunities, and help seniors maintain independent living.

• This year, over $12 million in national service efforts is being leveraged into community solutions by local programs – instead of bureaucracies – to solve critical problems.

• Since 2005, $9.5 million in Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards has gone to Montana colleges and universities to advance higher education for Montana students.
