Executive Summary

The Building Initiatives in Rural Community Health (BIRCH) AmeriCorps Program improves wellness conditions in 15 remote, rural Alaskan communities by recruiting an AmeriCorps member from within the community who engages at-risk youth in positive, community service activities that strengthen resiliency. BIRCH members address wellness needs in Alaskan villages by implementing projects such as health fairs, wellness conferences, cultural revitalization through traditional activities, community clean-ups, gardening, and tobacco prevention.
