CoF Fairbanks Youth Homelessness Demonstration VISTA
 
 
 
The Fairbanks Youth Advocates operates The Door, the only youth emergency shelter in Interior Alaska and is one of the organizations that will be assisting with the development of Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) projects. The YHDP is a federal program that encourages organizations to try innovative housing interventions for youth experiencing homelessness. The YHDP projects are collaborative projects that are strongly influenced by transitional age youth with lived experience in homelessness. The YHDP is new to Fairbanks and the CoF Fairbanks Youth Homelessness Demonstration VISTA will have a vital role in ensuring the implementation of viable YHDP projects. This is a volunteer service position with a living allowance of $1,333 per month and an annual education award of $6,095.
