Be A Mentor

Adult mentors and staff provide essential support to help youth learn the skills they need to successfully
reach their project goals. Adult Support roles can include mentoring a chapter, consulting, advising, training, presenting, speaking, or mentoring a teen in your community!

Our vision is to create a statewide movement of diverse young Alaskans with the skills, connections, and inspiration to advocate effectively for our communities and environment.

AYEA is proud to prioritize youth engagement as part of our work.

Our youth programs intentionally create a continuum of engagement opportunities in order to prepare leaders for conservation.

Mentors must be committed to the understanding that youth are the leaders and action-takers within AYEA, but that adults play a vital role to play in facilitating, guiding, and assisting their progress.

Adult Volunteers Are Required To:

  • Support youth voice and enjoy working with teenagers
  • Be at least 18 years old and out of high school
  • Pass a background check for working with minors
