PRIME for Life

Helping Youth Reach their Prime

Volunteers of America Alaska, in collaboration with the Anchorage School District and The Boys and Girls Clubs of Southcentral Alaska, is proud to offer PRIME for Life to middle and high school students in the greater Anchorage area.

PRIME For Life is a three-day, alternative-to-suspension course for first-time drug and alcohol offenses. It can also serve as preventive course for students wishing to avoid suspension.

The PRIME for Life program:

  • Occupies suspended students in a positive and educational environment
  • Engages students in self-evaluation of their decision to use drugs and alcohol
  • Helps students see the life-long consequences of drug and alcohol use
  • Equips students with the skills needed to prevent future substance abuse

PRIME For Life courses are available at two Anchorage locations:

12100 Coffee Commons
12100 Old Seward Highway
Wednesday-Friday: 9am-1pm

Volunteers of America Alaska
509 W. 3rd Avenue
Monday-Wednesday: 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

The course costs $55, payable on the first day of class. Students are expected to be punctual and follow all rules laid out in the student contract. Students need to bring their own lunches as they are not allowed to leave the building during the day.
