Prince of Wales VOCTEC Classes and Fund Raising

For Immediate Release

Kris Kain, Coordinator

The staff at the Prince of Wales Vocational and Technical Education Center (POW VOCTEC) have been busy raising funds and scheduling and hosting classes. There is a scheduled class in March which is a 6-pack Coast Guard license class ($950 course fee) from March 30 thru April 8 and a Water Operator Class (sponsored and hosted for free by the Alaska Rural Water Association) from April 6 thru 10, 2020. Information on all upcoming classes may be found on our recently updated website at

POW VOCTEC is a non-profit education facility, and currently the primary source of income is generated from room/facility rentals and donations. We also offer advertising on our LED light board and we participate in the Amazon Smile program, where Amazon will donate ½% of your purchases to a non-profit of your choice.

Current fundraising efforts include, a cash prize raffle, donation requests and grant writing. Raised funds go toward the operations and maintenance of the facility, including staff time to schedule new courses. The cash prize raffle will be drawn on March 31, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. at the POW VOCTEC. Tickets are $20/each and may be purchased at the POW VOCTEC or from any Board of Directors member. The first ticket drawn is worth $2,000, second ticket is $1,000, third ticket is $500, with seven additional opportunities to win $50 prizes.

We are always looking for people interested in teaching at POW VOCTEC, we can assist in setting course prices that cover instructor preparations and teaching time, materials, room rental fees and administration cost. For more information, please contact Kris Kain at or call 907-401-1456.
