Alaska Public Lands Information Center:
Community Partners Program
Girl Scouts of Alaska is proud to work with community partners to provide quality activities to enhance the Girl Scout experience.
Through program opportunities led by community partners, girls meet members of their community and other Girl Scouts. These partnerships also demonstrate Girl Scouting’s commitment to community service and encourage girls to wear their Girl Scout uniform and live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law as they improve our communities.
When deciding to attend a community partner event, troop leaders should research the event/activity prior to registering to ensure that the event meets the needs and interests of their girls and that all safety requirements are met.
The Alaska Public Lands Information Center offers a variety of educational programs, kits, and materials to assist teachers and youth leaders in meeting educational standards and curriculum needs. These interagency centers represent a local and statewide resource in teaching concepts in science, geography, mathematics, language arts, art, life skills, employability, and more. The facility is located at 605 West Fourth Avenue (at the corner of Fourth Avenue and F Street) in the Old Federal Building in downtown Anchorage.
