Elders & Youth Conference
The purpose of the gathering is to develop leadership in our Native youth, strengthened with the experience and wisdom of our Native Elders. For many of the participants, the conference is their first opportunity to attend a statewide gather and to engage in serious dialogue on issues relevant to Alaska Natives. Youth and Elders network with statewide organizations and individuals who are making a positive impact on our communities through Native traditions and modern technology alike. CFI offers assistance to attend this event.
