Youth and adults across the state, through church groups, youth-serving organizations, community groups, schools, and tribal groups are stepping up to provide service to their home communities. Alaska ICE is thankful for the opportunity to share information about and offer support for a number of these community engagement efforts.
In previous years, youth-led service project funding awards were one of the ways AASB was able to get involved. Youth-led community service projects ranged from small- to large-scale efforts and the sheer range of projects were incredible: from building community gardens to painting an Elder’s house and from landscaping a school to outfitting a youth center. In each instance, young people and adults worked together to give service to their community, which not only strengthens the community, but also develops assets in the youth.
