Rural Alaska Community Action Program
Commission Competitive Education Awards Program FY 2011
The Students In Service (SIS) AmeriCorps Program engages University of Alaska students, primarily from the Schools of Social Work and Nursing, in community through their practicum placements and other volunteer opportunities. Students In Service members serve their practicum with local social service agencies, hospitals, clinics and schools. They address wellness needs in Alaska by partnering with community agencies to implement projects such as health fairs, community clean-ups and other wellness events.
