Sitka AmeriCorps Program is a subgrantee of Serve Alaska and serves the community of Sitka through a partnership with the Sitka School District.
Serve Alaska promotes and supports volunteerism across the state and brings AmeriCorps programs to Alaska. It is overseen by no fewer than 15 and no more than 25 voting Commission members appointed by the Governor. The Serve Alaska sub-grantees operate in almost every region of the state, bringing much needed support and training to rural and urban Alaska. Serve Alaska is housed within the Division for Community and Regional Affairs and the Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development at the State of Alaska.
AmeriCorps, a federal agency, brings people together to tackle the country’s most pressing challenges, through national service and volunteering.
