Beer fest

Sled dog races

Fireworks booth

Fat tire bike ride

HQ hotel shifts are 6 hours, 24 hours a day until the last musher arrives in Nome. Lunch is provided, and there is food always available. If you are selected to work on the trail, ITC will fly you to your checkpoint and will provide food and a place to sleep. All equipment to work in the checkpoint is supplied; you only need to bring warm weather gear and your sleeping bag. Trail assignments are between 3 and 10 days, weather permitting.

The POC is Jennifer Dowling, Race Comms and Trail Coordinator. Her email is jdowling@iditarod.com. More information about all race opportunities and the volunteer registration form is here: https://iditarod.com/resources/volunteers/registration-start/




2020 Iditarod

The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is an annual event every March where mushers race from Willow to Nome. While there may be 50 to 70 mushers and over 900 sled dogs, there are at least twice that many volunteers who help make this race possible. There are volunteer opportunities before the race as well as during; you may request jobs at Iditarod Trail Committee (ITC) headquarters in Wasilla, at the Race HQ hotel in Anchorage (the Lakefront Hotel by Lake Hood), or even in checkpoints along the trail. Trail volunteers may work in villages, where they stay in the local school or community center, or in more remote tent camps.

Two areas of need are in Race Communications and Checkpoint Crew. Race Communication volunteers collect race information, such as musher times and dog counts, and make it ready for publication. Volunteers may work in the hotel, at a checkpoint, or in both places. Required skills include a working knowledge of Microsoft Office programs, clear and succinct telephone skills, be 18 years or older, organized, responsible, dependable, and detail oriented. Trail Comms volunteers are also physically fit enough to travel by small plane and perform heavy labor tasks in setting up and running the checkpoint. (Because they will fly to a checkpoint via the “Iditarod Air Force”, trail volunteers must be a member of the Iditarod Trail Committee.)

Checkpoint Crewmembers are assigned to work at checkpoints where they are generally responsible for set-up, maintenance, and disassembly of the Checkpoint. These positions require long hours and work is performed outside in the winter weather during the Race and will include staging 50 pound supply bags and bales of straw, establishing tracks and parking areas for dog teams, raking straw, lugging water, and assisting Comms or Vets with their duties.

HQ hotel shifts are 6 hours, 24 hours a day until the last musher arrives in Nome. Lunch is provided, and there is food always available. If you are selected to work on the trail, ITC will fly you to your checkpoint and will provide food and a place to sleep. All equipment to work in the checkpoint is supplied; you only need to bring warm weather gear and your sleeping bag. Trail assignments are between 3 and 10 days, weather permitting.

Habitat for Humanity Anchorage  

At Habitat for Humanity Anchorage, we Build! But swinging a hammer is not a requirement for volunteering. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us in our mission to make affordable housing a reality for hard-working families in our community. Whatever your experience, stage of life, skill set, or passion, there is a place for you here.

Be a construction volunteer: While home construction and renovation isn’t the only way to serve at Habitat, it is a big part of what we do. Volunteering on a worksite is perfect for those who want to get their hands dirty and learn a thing or two about construction.

Volunteer at ReStore: ReStore is a key part of how Habitat builds and renovates homes for those who need decent, affordable housing. ReStore is perfect for those who enjoy being creative with retail and helpful to customers – and it’s great for team-building, too!

We welcome individual volunteers, as well as groups of all kinds. Spending a day helping others can be a great team building activity for a group from your workplace, church, family, club, or civic organization. And volunteering isn't just good for others - as it turns out, it's pretty healthy for you also. Who knew? To volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, sign up today.

For groups or questions: Please contact Kimberly Harris by email at kharris@habitatanchorage.org or by phone at 907-868-3671.

Alaska Military Youth Academy


The AMYA is looking for  about six female Mentors with the Girls Platoon as soon as possible for a couple girls that do not have Mentors and a local Mentor for our out of town kids.  A few of the kids would really like to have military mentors.  We are also in need of a few male Mentors.  The Mentor program contributes greatly to the success of the Cadets.  Thanks for helping us out with finding Mentors for the AMYA program.  We are looking for positive role models that are willing to volunteer a little time and dedication to helping the students at AMYA be successful.  We ask that volunteers are willing to visit the Cadet at least twice a month, preferably weekly and that they send encouraging emails a couple times a week.  There will be one day during the cycle that the mentor can take the Cadet on an off campus 6 hour pass.  We also would like the Mentor to maintain contact and continue to encourage the Cadet after graduation from AMYA.  Applying to be a Mentor is easy.  We need an application and will complete a quick background check.  A Mentor Coordinator will complete an over the phone interview with the Mentor and there is a very simple training packet that will need to be completed.  Applications can be found on the AMYA website or download an application here.  We really appreciate your help with this.

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.


Become a Mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters

POC: Suzy Hambach, suzy.hambach@bbbsak.org,  907-433-4627  www.bbbsak.org

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you'll ever do.  Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child's future for the better by empowering them to achieve.   The best part is, it's actually a lot of fun.  You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.

Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza with extra anchovies. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you'll enjoy them even more with your Little--and you'll be making a life-changing impact. Volunteering just a few hours a month with a child can start something amazing. So why not apply to be a Big today. We have a particular need for male volunteers!

· All programs require a minimum one year commitment, and can be done individually or with your spouse/partner in a Couples Match
