ARISE program seeks volunteers

FarveARISE (Anchorage Realizing Indigenous Student Excellence), a Cook Inlet Tribal Council-affiliated program, is looking for volunteers willing to make sure that all Alaska Native children in Anchorage get access to the early learning and care they need for later school success.

As an ARISE volunteer you will:
• be trained in the art of community engagement
• be part of a team of volunteers laying the foundation for community change to ensure all Alaska Native children get a great start
• be asked to conduct 2-3 short visits (30 min.) per week with families with children between 0-5 years to talk about their hopes and dreams for their kids, and to attend one (1 hour) debrief meeting per week
• create relationships with Alaska Native families throughout Anchorage, practicing your own leadership, and supporting others to do the same

For more information or to volunteer, contact Lisa Moreno, ARISE Project Director, at 793-3220.
