  • Please share a general description of your organization or group, and the community you will focus on. Appendix D will help you to determine who you and your group define as your focus community, such as age group, neighborhood, program. You may upload Appendix D as a supplement to this application.
  • Safe Alaskans is working to support youth to know they matter to their community through meeting the following goals. Please describe how you will achieve these goals: • Safety. Youth want to live in a safer community, not just for physical safety but also to be emotionally safe to be themselves. • Support, Respect, and Fairness. Youth want to be treated fairly and with respect by adults. Having friendly, supportive, and positive relationships with adults provides the right role models to empower youth. • Make a Difference. Youth want to be engaged and make a difference. This may be through providing meaningful opportunities and service-based activities. Meaningful engagement also includes youth involved in decision-making, leadership, and implementing a project.
