Anna McGovern

Afterschool Program Specialist

Anna McGovern is the new Afterschool Program Specialist with the Alaska Afterschool Network. She received her formal education at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA and graduated with a BA in Political Science and Chinese. Post-grad she found myself in education and spent some time working as a preschool teacher, coaching high school lacrosse and teaching 4th grade with Teach for America. The military then relocated her family to Alaska nearly six years ago. She spent those years with RurAL CAP first as an AmeriCorps VISTA and then moved into work focusing on statewide youth tobacco prevention initiatives. In her free time she likes to try and tame her wild 11-month-old, be outdoors, hike, run, and read. She is excited to be supporting and working with youth workers!
