America's Promise

The Alaska State Community Service Commission promotes and provides funding through federal grants for the Promise Fellows. The current Promise Fellows program is being hosted by Anchorage’s Promise and the Anchorage Youth Development Coalition (AYDC).

The 2004 goals and objective are:

Getting Things Done

The Alaska Promise assigned to Anchorage’s Promise and the Anchorage Youth Development Coalition (AYDC) will organize 2 youth service events, with at least one event-taking place during a National Day of Service. Each event will engage 15 Anchorage youth as volunteers serving at least 100 peers of children. Participation will be measured through a volunteer attendance record.

Member Development

The Alaska Promise Fellows assigned to Anchorage’s Promise and the Anchorage Youth Development Coalition will lead/coordinate 8 committee meetings. Coordination may include, but is not limited to: sending meeting notices, preparing agendas, recording minutes, and presenting committee reports to the leadership of Anchorage’s Promise and the AYDC. The Promise Fellows will create a portfolio to demonstrate their ability to complete these tasks.

Strengthening Communities

The Alaska Promise Fellows assigned to Anchorage’s Promise and the Anchorage Youth Development Coalition will help coordinate youth involvement for each host organization. The Alaska Promise Fellows will establish a Youth Involvement Committee or Youth Advisory Board to work in an advisory role with the Anchorage’s Promise Board of Directors or the AYDC Executive Committee. Members of these committees will be between 14 and 20 years of age. A successful Youth Involvement Committee or Youth Advisory Board will maintain at least 5 active members.
