News and Events






AWAIC volunteer Lori Miebs, 19, recently won a Spirit of Youth Award for overcoming adversity. Lori was stabbed dozens of times by her ex-boyfriend when she was a student at Service High School. She has since started speaking out against teen dating violence and talking to other teens about warning signs of abusive relationships.





"Romig Chooses Respect" in the News 

The Java Team from Romig Middle School worked with AWAIC to write a Youth Mini-Grant from the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. The students received the grant and worked throughout last school year to educate their peers about dating violence. They have since moved on to high school, but their good works keep getting recognized. Recently, they received a "Domestic Violence Awareness Month Award" along with their teachers.  On 11/14/11, they will again be recognized at the Anchorage School Board meeting.




Romig Principal Sven Gustafson, teachers Mark Elfstrom and Kathy Reiman, and Java Team Students show off their award.
