Our mission

The mission of the Youth Alliance for a Healthier Alaska is to advise the Adolescent Health program and other Division of Public Health programs and to create interventions designed at improving the lives of adolescents in Alaska.

Who are we?

We are a group of diverse, energetic teens ages 14-18 from across Alaska. We are interested in health and are enthusiastic about shaping how our state responds to youth issues that we all experience.

What do we do?

We provide feedback insight and advice to youth serving agencies. We review materials created for teens by youth serving organizations.

We create interventions designed to improve the lives of adolescents in Alaska.

Please contact Jennifer Baker, Adolescent Health Project Coordinator if you are interested in becoming a YAHA member or if you would like to work with our youth advisory team on a campaign or project.
