The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education is seeking over 200 volunteers to participate in career panels for the Kids2College program – a partnership activity with the University of Alaska College Savings Plan. We have many panels in Anchorage, and in particular we also seek panelists with connections to living/working in rural Alaska for virtual panels connecting with rural schools from our office in Anchorage.

Would you or someone you know be interested in and available to help inspire young Alaskans with college and career stories?

Volunteers will be given the opportunity to talk with 5th & 6th grade students about their own educational and career experiences as part of a 3-5 person career panel. Each volunteer will be provided with guiding questions and tips and asked to speak for 5-10 minutes to the class, then be available for Q&A at the end of the panel. Early dates and schools are listed below. Total time commitment is 1 hour.

Check out our Career Panel Toolbox at: www.acpe.alaska.gov/Kids2College.

Volunteers will not be responsible for speaking during the entire block of time. Contact Shelly Morgan, K-12 Specialist, Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education, at shelly.morgan@alaska.gov and volunteer to help inspire Anchorage youth today! Please spread the word and share with your friends and colleagues!

Kids2College is a partnership activity of the University of Alaska College Savings Plan and Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education. This program needs volunteers like you!

College is possible – help continue delivering this important message to Alaska’s youth.

The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is a FREE summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested in the health professions. SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. These students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage.

Program

The University of Iowa Health Sciences Colleges is pleased to offer an enriching six week experience with SHPEP. The Health Sciences Colleges include the Carver College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Pharmacy, and College of Public Health. They strongly believe in the value of exposing students from underrepresented backgrounds to the possibility of pursuing health fields and supporting their goals in accomplishing that dream to help improve the health of society at large.
