ASYMCA Atwood Military Lounge (AML) Volunteer Opportunity


Did you know that the ASYMCA Atwood Military Lounge (AML), located in the Ted Stevens International Airport, provides service to an average of 1,000 visitors each month? The lounge, which is open 16 hours a day, 365 days a year, gives visitors from all branches of service and their dependents a safe, quiet place to relax while traveling through Alaska. Daily operations are handled by volunteers, with support and overall program management by the ASYMCA. While we work hard to keep things running smoothly, it is really the extraordinary efforts of our volunteers that has made the lounge such a success for over 30 years.

Interested volunteers can view monthly schedules and sign up for shifts at www.asymca.org/alaska-mcl Please feel free to contact the ASYMCA if you have any questions, or need assistance with signing up for a shift.

Do you have a group looking for a volunteer opportunity? Units & Booster clubs that 'adopt' the lounge for a two- or four-week period are eligible for honorarium funding of up to $1,000 from the ASYMCA. This is a great way for groups to earn volunteer hours and raise money for Booster Club projects! Email the ASYMCA at welcome.center@akasymca.org for more information about the Adopt-A-Lounge Program.


Become a Mentor with the Alaska Military Youth Academy


            Make a Difference. The Alaska Military Youth Academy is an accredited High School on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER) for young Alaskans who are between the ages of 16 and 18 years old and at risk of not completing their educational goals. One of the requirements for our Cadets to be successful is that they have a mentor who is willing to visit with, support and keep them encouraged during their stay with us (Residential Phase) and for one year afterwards (Post Residential Phase). A percentage of our Cadets come from rural locations around the state and do not personally know anyone in the Anchorage or Mat-Su area that can support them. Some of our Cadets also come from less than ideal family circumstances and/or communities and have no support system that is willing or able to encourage positive life choices. It is for these kids, we ask for your help. By volunteering as a mentor, you are agreeing to commit to a time investment in the life of a young Alaskan and to build up tomorrow's future. You would be a vital part of encouraging a student (referred to as a Cadet) to pursue their dreams; you may help provide tools and shed light on opportunities that they haven't considered. You will witness the transformation of kids with doubtful futures into young men and woman with the educational tools and emotional capabilities to succeed in the next stage of their life. We are certain that this opportunity will have a positive, lasting effect on your life as well. The minimum time commitment is simply a weekly visit for one hour each week on the JBER, Camp Carroll Campus during the 22 week Residential Phase and, when geographically feasible, during the 12 month Post-Residential Phase. Volunteer mentors must be 21 years old or older, the same sex as the cadet they are mentoring, not live in the same household, and able to pass a criminal background check. We'd love to have you on board. Please visit our website at www.akmya.org or follow us on our Facebook page (Alaska Military Youth Academy ~ AMYA)  to find out more about our program. If you would like to make a difference in a young person's life, please contact Deb Morton at 907-428-7337 or deborah.morton@alaska.gov.
