Covenant House Alaska Volunteer Requirements
As a licensed child care facility and to assure the safety of our youth, all volunteer applicants will undergo a background check, and we are unable to accept court ordered community work service volunteers.
In order to best serve our youth, Covenant House implemented a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all on-site staff and volunteers Prior to getting started for any on-site volunteer roles, all volunteers will need to submit proof of vaccination or complete the medical/religious exemption process. There are limited outdoor/off-site opportunities that do not require these processes. At this time, face coverings are optional. The full policy is available for volunteers to review.
Some volunteer roles have minimum age requirements:
- Kitchen Volunteers: 18 years old
- Direct-Care Volunteers: 21 years old
- Mentors: 28 years old
- Volunteers under 18: Accompanied by an adult
Additional onboarding steps may be required depending on the volunteer role(s) pursued.
