Native students learn value of community service

A unique program offered by the Tanana Chiefs Conference of Alaska opens Native students to the world of community service.

The Tribal Civilian Community Corps recently traveled to Florida to assist in hurricane recovery efforts. They helped clean debris and manned phones for the United Way.

The program is open to any Alaska Native, American Indian or Native Hawaiian person ages 18 through 26. Participants are required to perform 1,700 hours of community service. They must work to obtain their GED if they don't have a high school diploma and work toward job placement or college admission at the end of the program.
