The problem: students are entering life after graduation unprepared leading to record-breaking rates of poverty, homelessness, drop outs, hunger, debt, and the list continues. The solution: you. You can break the cycles of miseducation and lack of preparation. You can change the game, and inspire students to see success is possible in Alaska. Learn how you can become a mentor who helps empower young people to own their economic success.
