Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc.

WISE youth and instructor

Youth learn winter survival skills through the Wrangell Institute on Science and Environment (WISE) program. Youth from Kenny Lake, Mentasta, Slana and Glennallen attended Camp Chosen Frozen, which is organized in cooperation with Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. RurAL CAP’s Youth Development and Culture program provides grants to rural communities to implement activities involving youth in leadership development. Funding for the programs is provided by the Department of Juvenile Justice. The goal of the program is to decrease juvenile delinquency by involving rural Alaska Native youth in positive skill-building projects and build local capacity to manage state grants.
