Anchorage United for Youth

Sarah Sledge, director of community action at the United Way of Anchorage, and Dawn Growth, a community member who took action to serve the youth in her neighborhood, join host Shana Sheehy to speak about the upcoming¬†Anchorage United for Youth Summit (September 18, 12:30-4 at the Dena’ina Center). We’ll hear about the ways that local community programs are reaching out to kids and what teens have to say about being young in Anchorage. We’ll also learn simple ways that anyone can get involved in being a positive force in the life of a child.

Marge Larson, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Alaska, along with her 5th grade daughter, spoke with producer Sarah Gonzales about scouting in the 21st century – it’s more than cookies and camp these days!

Tuesday’s show premieres the first in a new series of mentor profiles called Power of One – this week contributor Scott Burton highlights the work of Leslie Dahl, former coach of the Juneau-Douglas HIgh School drill team.
