Volunteer Programs and Opportunities

Mission

The Kenaitze Indian Tribe is committed to providing an unparalleled level of service and support to the Kahtnuht'ana Dena'ina Community. To achieve this goal the tribe seeks to recruit and maintain a volunteer pool of dynamic and dedicated community members who are willing to devote their time to assist the tribe in providing exemplary services.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Kenaitze Indian Tribe currently offers volunteer placement in the following programs:

Dena'ina Wellness Center Ambassador Program

The purpose of the Dena'ina Wellness Center's Ambassador Program is to help guide un'ina (customer) to appointments, greet un'ina, and provide companionship to un'ina (customer) in waiting rooms, get coffee, snacks or other items that make the wait more comfortable.

The Ambassador Program's volunteers are a vital, dynamic group which devotes their time to perform services that are "extras", designed to help un'ina (customer) and their families, and which would not otherwise be provided by the Dena'ina Wellness Center.
