Volunteering with Story Works

Story Works Alaska is made possible thanks to the efforts of many wonderful volunteers.  Please take a look at the opportunities listed below to see what works best for your availability and interests.

Whether you want to participate in one of our traditional volunteer positions here in Anchorage or have another skill or idea you’d like to contribute, please contact us or submit a volunteer application!

Story Coaching

The role of the story coach is to listen and help students as they develop their personal stories.  What you’ll need is a kind ear, effective communication skills, a love of stories, and an interest in helping students with their work. Qualified volunteers will receive story coach training offered with support from the Alaska Teen Media Institute. If you’d like to help support our high school storytelling workshops, you are welcome to submit a volunteer application!

Returning volunteers, here’s the current high school storytelling workshop schedule.

Outreach / Organizing

Volunteers are needed to help with website, social media, and/or volunteer  recruitment.  If you are interested in helping Story Works Alaska grow its programming and improve opportunities for students, please be in touch. You can even start now by liking us on Facebook or following us on Instagram (@storyworksak).

We are not currently hiring for paid positions. But we will update this site when positions become available.

Additionally, we are often able to welcome new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out a volunteer application and we’ll be in touch if your interest, experience, and skills match current needs.


Before using the online registration system confirm that your application has been approved and make sure you can attend (or have attended) an orientation session prior to your volunteer date. We will have to decline any unapproved registrations. Thanks for your understanding!

It's cool, I've been approved! (if I haven't, I'm just looking.)

Oops, I need to fill out a volunteer application...
