Jeff Chen

Recruiting Representative, Alaska Region

Recruiter Bio

Jeff Chen (陳奕正) is the SCA Recruiter for the Alaska Region. He’s a Taiwanese American Alaska transplant who enjoys chill outdoor activities, standing up for justice, and learning about people and places. He’s available to help high school students and young adults complete the entire SCA application process.

Since 2012, Jeff has called Anchorage home and is fortunate to have traveled across the land — both on and off the road system. He knows first hand how impactful SCA programs can be, as he’s been a SCA intern at Yosemite, crew leader in Denali, and alumni council member throughout the years.

With the help of great mentors, Jeff has enjoyed working in digital media production, music, and conservation. In 2010, he co-founded a nonprofit group called Pick Up America, which completed the nation’s first coast-to-coast litter pick-up.

Recognizing that the field of western conservation was created at the exclusion of indigenous and minority communities, Jeff is committed to creating a movement rooted in diversity, equity, and inclusion. If you have questions about SCA or otherwise, feel free to contact Jeff.
