 “At the Summit I realized that politics are really about taking care of people and the environment, and am very excited to get more involved now that I know how.” - Abbey VandenBerg, Gustavus

We need your help to send 20 teens to Juneau for the life-changing Civics & Conservation Summit. At the Summit, teens learn about the legislative process, study current bills, and take action to stand up for healthy communities and protecting wild salmon.

Help AYEA teens fly to Juneau by donating airline milescompanion fare coupons, or cash.

“The Civics & Conservation Summit changed my views on politics. I feel that I really can connect to my legislators as people rather than blaming and complaining about what they’re doing wrong. Because of this week, I’ll keep keep up with politics as much as I do with science. None of this would have been possible without the great friends I made here.” -Khan Overcast, Mt. Edgecumbe

AYEA rocks! AYEA teens are our future and they get it about the need to conserve our resources, support local, sustainable agriculture where we can in Alaska, and positively work with the Legislature. Let’s support them in their efforts! – Ann Rappoport, ACE Board & parent of AYEA Grad
