The Alaska Center Education Fund
The Alaska Center Education Fund is an organization separate from The Alaska Center, with it’s own mission, programs, and Board of Directors.
Vision: We envision a thriving and sustainable Alaska for future generations.
Mission: We educate and empower Alaskans (of all ages) to support clean air and water, encourage healthy communities, and become engaged citizens.
Who We Are:
We are Alaskans working to make our home the best place to live. Our future depends upon the health of the resources that sustain our diverse cultures, livelihoods, and families. Together, we ensure everyone can enjoy Alaska’s tremendous natural resources, and that we grow and cultivate leaders who champion values supporting a vibrant future for generations to come.
What We Do:
We work with Alaskans to understand the values of our natural assets like clean air, water, and salmon, and how clean energy, diverse cultures, and local sustainable economic opportunities support the quality of life we desire for ourselves and our children’s children. We also work to ensure Alaskans are knowledgeable and have a voice in the decisions impacting our future.
How We Make a Difference/How We Do It:
- EDUCATE: We introduce youth of all ages to the outdoors, providing hiking, biking, kayaking and other outdoor opportunities and education about the natural world through Trailside Discovery Camp.
EMPOWER: We train hundreds of teens to how to be effective advocates for their environment and communities through the Alaska Youth for Environmental Action program, and introduce emerging leaders to conservation careers.
- ENGAGE: We work with all Alaskans to understand the values of our natural assets like clean air, clean water, and healthy salmon, and how clean energy, diverse cultures, and local sustainable economic opportunities support the quality of life we desire for ourselves and our children’s children.
