Quavon Bracken, Peer Outreach Worker


Quavon Bracken, Program Manager
My name is Quavon Bracken and I have been a Peer Outreach Worker since 2014. My favorite part of my job is knowing that our program makes a positive impact on the lives of youth that come into center. Even if the encounter seems small, it can be big to them.

Reid Stratton, Peer Outreach Worker

Hi, I’m Reid, I have been a  Peer Outreach Worker since October 2019. My favorite part about working at the Power Center is connecting with youth. When I’m not working, I spend my free time playing board games, videogames, card games, and watching anime. I Have always loved food and started learning how to cook at the Power Center.

Born and raised in Anchorage, I graduated from East High School class of 2019. I love being active in my community by competing in our Alaska Native traditional games, attending local events, and educating my peers on creating safe place opportunities.

I have been working in the Power Center for a little over a year and adore being able to better our community by advocating for an at-risk population.

Although I am a Peer Outreach Worker in the Power Center, I am also very fond of coffee and have a barista position at Black Cup. I am a current freshman at the University of Alaska Anchorage, majoring in Business in the hopes of having a career as a coffee shop owner.

Thomas Staley, Peer Outreach Worker

My name is Thomas Staley. I started training to be a Peer Outreach Worker in October 2020.  I really like the vision this organization has, as well as learning to socialize and communicate with transition age youth.

In my free time I spend a lot of timing playing competitive video games, as well as just try to hang out with friends and family.
