Civics and Conservation Summit 2020!

What is the Civics & Conservation Summit?

Each spring, AYEA youth delegates travel to our state capitol in Juneau, Alaska and gain skills in communication, advocacy, and the democratic process. Teens meet with their legislators and advocate on the issues they care about. The Civics & Conservation Summit is a transformational experience that empowers young people to make real change on the issues that they are most passionate about.

This year the Civics and Conservation Summit will be held in spring 2020! We’ll spend our days at a training location downtown. Suggested tuition costs $125 per teen, but scholarships are available for both tuition and travel. Please contact Margi Dashevsky at 907-274-3632 or margi@akcenter.org for more information.

During the training, youth learn: how to talk with the media, how to communicate with elected officials, how to read a bill, and how to impact decisions our leaders make about our environment and our lives. We also include sessions on the tribal resolution process, environmental justice, and defining sources of power and influence. The training ends with youth-led visits to state legislators to discuss environmental concerns and interests.
