NAMI Juneau partners with United Way of Southeast Alaska to host 1 AmeriCorps member each year. 

We're looking for our next AmeriCorps Member!

The AmeriCorps Member will support our youth programming and support outreach efforts in the community. 


Youth programming will consist of:

  • Co-facilitating Sources of Strength – a program for high school students designed to positively affect the school environment as a means of secondary suicide prevention. 

  • Possible support for Why I Stay… an oral history project for individuals to share their experience with mental health issues. 

In addition to supporting youth programming, our AmeriCorps member will support our training and outreach work by:

  • Provide content and logistical support for our ongoing training and outreach events.  This can include, but is not limited to, marketing events, providing trainings (proper support will be provided), moderating discussions and other support for online events. 

  • Provide support for in-person outreach events if possible.  Our only COVID-19 outreach event so far was outreach to people who are experiencing homelessness.   

  • Select one advocacy project to advance services for people living with mental illness. 

  • Supporting our web development.

  • Pursue outreach programming with partner organizations.

The position will start in August, 2021 and will end in June of 2022.
