Alaska Afterschool Network, Alaska Resilience Initiative, Voices for Alaska's Children

The Alaska Children's Trust Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT) was established in 1988 with the goal of preventing child abuse and neglect throughout the state. Read more about our history.

It is our mission to ensure all Alaskan children grow up in a family and community that provides them with all the tools and resources necessary to make their dreams come true.

Child abuse and neglect continues to put a burden on the individual, the family, the community and the state long after the abuse has occurred. Children who experience this type of trauma – also called Adverse Childhood Experiences – typically have poor school performance, use mental health resources at a higher rate, are more likely to be part of the correctional system, and are more likely to experience health issues.

For every dollar we invest in preventing children from experiencing trauma like child abuse and neglect, the return on investment is tenfold. With the generous support of our donors, ACT has invested more than $4 million in Alaskan children and families since our inception. Read some inspiring success stories.

Our efforts include the Alaska Afterschool Network, the Alaska Adverse Childhood Experiences Initiative, Prevent Child Abuse Alaska, and Strengthening Families approach.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
