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.

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. At this time all volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit an exemption request. Additionally, all volunteers are required to wear face coverings while on-site. Thanks for your understanding as we do our best to protect our community. 




At Home/Distanced Opportunities


Safely support us from afar!

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.

Those opportunities that are one-time, short-term or non-direct care (kitchen, clothing room) have an abbreviated application process.

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




Group Opportunities


If you represent a business, church, 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.
