The Arctic Youth Ambassadors program brings together diverse youth from across Alaska to build awareness at home and abroad about their lives in the Arctic. Arctic Youth Ambassadors gain fully-funded opportunities to represent Alaska in international Arctic conferences, visit their representatives in the lower 48, and engage in activities with other youth from across Alaska. Indigenous and non-Indigenous Alaskan youth ages ~17 to 20 are eligible to apply. All youth applicants must be nominated by an adult who agrees to mentor them through fall 2021.
