We are thrilled to announce that we are expanding our programming to include Story Works Alaska!

The integration of Story Works into the Forum’s programming represents a profound alignment of missions and values and a dedication on the part of both organizations to the power of storytelling. Story Works has supported youth voices through in-school storytelling and writing workshops for the last decade. To date, this program has positively impacted 5,000 youth by providing them opportunities to build connections while listening to and learning from each other.

This integration offers long-term sustainability for the mission of Story Works and enables the Alaska Humanities Forum to deepen our commitment to youth storytelling.

You can help us continue to inspire understanding and spark connections through youth storytelling by:

    • Learning more: Discover more about Story Works by visiting the program’s website. Be sure to check out the recordings of stories by past program participants.
    • Supporting youth voices: Your continued generosity will help us provide essential resources and opportunities to young storytellers. Please consider making a donation today.
    • Getting involved: Story Works programming depends on a cohort of volunteer Story Coaches that help support students throughout their storytelling workshop. If you are interested in volunteering or would like to learn more, please send us an email at or follow this link to sign up.
    • Thank you!: Thank you for joining us to celebrate our shared mission! During our "Evening in Support of Storytelling" reception at Fire Island Bakery in January, we heard from many participants who reminded us of the positive impact of this program.  The outpouring of love and support for this work by community members was incredible.  We are excited for what is to come!
