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!
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).
