Alaska is an SCA “region” unto itself with more than 325 million acres of public land – more than half this nation’s wilderness. SCA is working to ensure Alaska Native youth remain connected with their natural resources, culture and heritage by forging youth-focused networks of government agencies, Alaska Native corporations, and local organizations.
Either in spite of, or because of, vast geographically spances and low populations, collaboration with complimentary organizations and programs is key to creating meaningful opportunities for all of SCA’s members.
In recent years, this collaborative effort has achieved a four-fold increase in the number of Alaskan Native teens participating in habitat protection, trail construction, and historic restoration. And with their new-found skills and experience, many SCA alumni are advancing to conservation careers, with our agency partners particularly eager to bring on diverse, young employees reﬂective of the community at large.
