Native Youth Leaders visit Juneau

Posted: Sunday, February 20, 2011

The Kenai Peninsula Native Youth Leaders visited state capital in Juneau earlier this month. The group was in Juneau to participate in Close-Up events and get a better understanding of the Alaska legislative process. The Kenai Peninsula Native Youth Leaders, previously named the Kenai Peninsula Native Youth Council, is a student group formed in 2010 that is designed to enhance leadership opportunities, career awareness and Native student contacts across the state.

The Native Youth Leaders work with other Native youth in the state to help solve community problems. While in Juneau they also connected with other Native community leaders and youth from around the state. The students are filming a video that will help illustrate the qualities of a Native leader that they will show at schools around the Kenai Peninsula to generate interest in the organization.
