Request for Proposals: Review of Peer Listener Program

Tustamena Lake on Kenai Peninsula near Kenai

The Council is inviting proposals for a comprehensive review of its Peer Listener Training program and similar programs in Alaska and nationwide. After the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill, social scientists working with the impacted communities developed a Peer Listener program to build community resilience. The training teaches peer listening techniques that allow community members to support each other.

The current RFP is for Phase I of the project. Work includes:

  1. Review the Peer Listener Training and associated manual. 
  2. Make recommendations for updating the program for a contemporary audience with improved techniques and methodologies for delivering peer listener training

The resulting report will inform the Council’s decisions about how to revise the peer listener training, the associated manual, and the train-the-trainer program. A Phase II RFP for implementation of recommendations may be forthcoming after completion of Phase I, subject to Board of Directors approval and the availability of funding.

Submittal Deadline: April 1, 2021
Award Announcement: April 23, 2021

Funds available for educational projects related to our mission

The Council works to educate Exxon Valdez region youth about the environmentally safe operation of the Alyeska terminal and associated tankers. Working with area youth is vital to fight complacency that can arise if new generations of citizens are not continually reminded of the need for ongoing oil spill prevention.

To support this effort, the Council is inviting proposals for facilitating learning experiences with Exxon Valdez oil spill region youth.
