Prevention starts with empowering our youth
“Youth development is the purest form of prevention. Safe Alaskans is leading the way.”
– Michael Kerosky, Leadership Team Member, ex officio
Building a professional community of youth workers
“AYDC is a hub for youth-serving agencies, from line-workers to directors, to share their successes, learn new approaches, and to collaborate on innovative solutions.”
– Lee Post, AYDC Leadership Team Member
We focus on individual, family, and community strengths and potential, this includes increasing protective factors and developmental assets.
Data is a driving factor in our decisions. Our priorities and actions are informed by and focused on producing measurable results and effective solutions.
We network and build relationships that improve informal and formal support systems for youth through meaningful community participation and the sharing of ideas and resources. “We do together what we cannot do alone.”
We are committed to building a coalition that welcomes and celebrates diverse perspectives, individuals and organizations. We value and seek to involve youth in the coalition and community.
