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.

In response to COVID-19, our volunteer opportunities are very limited at this time. Below you'll learn about all the different ways in which you could volunteer--now or in the future--and steps to get there.

As a licensed child care facility and to assure the safety of our youth, volunteer applicants must be at least 21 years of age (28 years for mentors).

Note that volunteers will undergo a background check, and we are unable to accept court ordered community work service volunteers.

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

You may also learn about other opportunities to give here.
