Juneau Economic Development Council
STAR AmeriCorps is a program of the Juneau Economic Development Council.
The Juneau Economic Development Council (JEDC) STAR AmeriCorps Program is a multi-focus program designed to strengthen our community’s ability to provide needed services in Juneau. STAR stands for Service to Achieve Results, in recognition of the service of AmeriCorps Members as its key resource. Juneau Economic Development Council (JEDC) launched the STAR AmeriCorps Program in 2015 to fill a gap in the community, to execute its economic development strategy of talent development, and to strengthen the bonds between agencies that serve our community.
The program is designed to give college grads opportunities to develop leadership skills and community ties while serving and being mentored within Juneau's close-knit community in non-profits, schools and public agencies.
