Welcome to Serve Alaska!

Serve Alaska, in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, brings AmeriCorps programs to Alaska. 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 also works with the National Service Inclusion Project to foster and encourage persons with disabilities to participate in community service.

This website provides information on our different programs, activities and funding opportunities.
