Thanks to Our Partners:

Story Works Alaska collaborates closely with the wonderful team at the Alaska Teen Media Institute and owes a deep debt to Arctic Entries and their dedicated Story Board. Other wonderful collaborators include the Anchorage Museum, Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services, and Leadership Anchorage.

Further support and inspiration is provided by the Alaska Humanities Forum, the Atwood Foundation, the National Storytelling Network, the National Writing Project/ Educator Innovator, the Rasmuson Foundation, the Alaska Community Foundation, Anchorage Youth Development Coalition, and Spirit of Youth, and as well as volunteers, partner teachers, and the many students who have shared stories and feedback with us.

We are also grateful for pro-bono support from Ashburn and Mason, Attorneys, Koteff Accounting, Gwen Kennedy and Associates, and Rising Tide Communications.

If you are interested in becoming a supporter too, please click here to donate any amount you choose! All donations will help support youth in Story or College Essay Workshops.

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

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