Volunteer Opportunity of the Week
Organization: Challenge Day
Contact Information: 321-2782
Volunteer Opportunity: Volunteers are needed to participate in Challenge Day at Juneau-Douglas High School March 7-9 and Yaakoosge Daakaheedi High School on March 10. Adults don’t need to have any special skills or training. Challenge Day leaders will meet with volunteers on the morning of the program to provide assignments.
Challenge Days are powerful, high-energy programs in which youth and adult participants are guided through a series of experiential learning processes. The overall goals of the program are to increase personal power and self-esteem, to shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support and to eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence and all forms of oppression. Challenge Day programs are designed to unite the members of the school and/or community and to empower them to carry the themes of the program back to the greater school population. Challenge Days successfully address the issues of violence, teasing, social oppression, racism, harassment, conflict management, suicide, peer pressure, alcohol and drugs.
Adult participants for JDHS will need to arrive at 8:45 a.m. and stay until roughly 4:10 p.m. and participants for YDHS will need to stay from 7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided Bullwinkle’s Pizza, and bottled water and various snack foods will also be available.
