What are YOU doing March 11-15, 2013?
Alaska Youth for Environmental Action’s annual Civics & Conservation Summit brings 20 youth leaders to our state capital for a week of high-impact, fun-filled, and adrenaline-pumping civic engagement lessons. 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!

The training ends with youth-led visits to state legislators to discuss environmental concerns and interests. This is a life-changing training that will give teens skills they can use in any arena.

When & Where: The 2013 Civics & Conservation Summit will take place Monday through Friday, March 11-15 in Juneau. We will stay at the Juneau International Youth Hostel and will be in the St. Anns’ Parish Hall for our training sessions.

Apply now: AYEA is currently accepting applications for youth delegates, youth trainers, and adult trainers.  Deadline to apply is January 15, 2012. Early applications are encouraged.

Cost: The cost to attend is $100 tuition plus travel to Juneau. Travel scholarships are available and AYEA staff can support teens’ fundraising efforts.
