Volunteer Opportunities




We could not accomplish our mission here at Covenant House Alaska without volunteers. The time, talent and support that’s provided is essential to everything we do. Learn more about our volunteer


As a licensed child care facility and to assure the safety of our youth, many volunteer roles require a minimum age of 21 years (28 years for mentors). All volunteers will undergo a background check, and we are unable to accept court ordered community work service volunteers.

As our community continues to navigate COVID-19, we have policies in place to mitigate risk. All volunteers are required to wear face coverings while on-site, regardless of vaccination status. Weekly COVID-19 testing is required for unvaccinated individuals and encouraged for vaccinated individuals. Thanks for your understanding as we do our best to protect our community.

Individual Opportunities


There are so many ways for volunteers to support our mission--find what you're passionate about! 

For most of our direct-care volunteer roles we seek a long-term, weekly commitment because consistency is really important for the youth we serve. This also requires an extensive application, background check and orientation process, started by the Direct-Care Volunteer Application. Those opportunities that are one-time, short-term or non-direct care (kitchen, clothing room) have an abbreviated application process, started by the Volunteer Inquiry Form

Group Opportunities


If you represent a business, church group, club or other group that would like to volunteer together, we'd love to work with you. Group projects vary depending upon our current needs as well as the availability, size, skills, and budget of the group. 

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Holly Payne, at volunteer@covenanthouseak.org or 907-339-4261 to learn more.



Youth Opportunities


Because we serve youth, volunteers on-site in youth serving spaces must be at least 21 years old. If you don’t yet meet that age requirement, see below for other ways you can get involved.
