At the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska, we recognize the challenges of military life, especially in a remote area like Alaska. That’s why we’re devoted to nurturing the well-being of Alaska’s currently serving military community, regardless of their branch of service. We support our troops by connecting military families from installations all over Alaska with free and low-cost programs and services designed to help strengthen resiliency and mission readiness. With two offices on Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (JBER) in the Anchorage area, and a satellite office on Ft. Wainwright in interior Alaska, we are well positioned to serve those who serve our country.
The Armed Services YMCA enhances the lives of military members and their families in spirit, mind and body through programs relevant to the unique challenges of military life.
Priority shall be given to providing needed programs and services for junior enlisted personnel, both single and married, and their family members. The focus of work shall be in three areas - youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Services may be provided to military personnel other than junior enlisted where resources are available. Programs and services shall be designed to complement and supplement those provided by the Armed Forces, either on or off military installations as appropriate.
We can do more with partnerships in the community. We work closely with other veteran service organizations to ensure no service member goes without their needs being met.
