Anchorage Urban Fellows
The Anchorage Urban Fellows is a nine-month long fellowship program that places dynamic college graduates in some of Anchorage’s most significant civic institutions. By immersing the fellows in the Anchorage community, the program aims to curate an amazing experience for its participants and, more broadly, provide a pipeline of young talent and energy into Anchorage’s (and Alaska’s) economy and community life. The program is backed by well-connected and wonderful members of the Anchorage community that will plug fellows into the broader Anchorage outdoor/civic/community/art life.
The position begins September 2017. Housing and a living stipend are provided.

Camp AmeriKids (a program of The ELM Project)
Camp AmeriKids, a summer camp for children living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS and sickle cell disease, is looking for caring, responsible, energetic and fun counselors for our 2017 season. A volunteer counselor team is responsible for the 24-hour supervision of a cabin and maintains a camper to counselor ratio of about 2 to1. Counselors spend each day of camp with their cabin group as they rotate through a schedule of activities and participate in new and exciting workshops provided by the program staff. The cabin counselor’s enthusiastic participation in all aspects of camp, from meals and activities to nightly special events and cabin chats, is crucial in creating a memorable camp experience for our campers. Counselors are expected to be role models, sources of energy and ideas, and are a key part of the Camp AmeriKids community. Room & board at our site in Warwick, NY is provided.
Volunteers can apply for our 2017 camp session that will be held from August 5-12, 2017.
Applications are available on the Camp AmeriKids website.
