Our Work in the Community

Making a Difference

We are committed to the communities where our team members live and work. We recognize investing in our youth and their futures is how we build positive, healthy places to live. That’s why youth development – including initiatives that provide youth with opportunities for education and leadership, positive environments to learn and grow, and access to technology – is a core focus of Alaska Communications’ commitment to responsible corporate citizenship. That’s also why we started the Summer of Heroes scholarship program.

Community Support

We support our employees —
who support our communities

Through our Alaska Communications Employee Volunteer Grant Program we are proud to support our people, contributing up to $250 to any eligible non-profit at which our employees volunteer 20 or more hours per calendar year.

To see if your organization is one we can work with in the future, please email us at [email protected].

Some of our larger community-support programs include work with United Way, Junior Achievement, the University of Alaska, 90% by 2020, and our annual Summer of Heroes scholarship program in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs – Alaska.
