Growing an Entrepreneurial Culture in Rural Alaska


 The Alaska Communications Center is designed to fulfill its motto “Bringing Rural and Urban Alaska Together.”  Specifically, a newly funded, innovative project, the 21st CENTURY LEARN, EARN AND SERVE ACADEMY is designed to build a foundation of skills that will increase work readiness and basic entrepreneurial skills utilizing the internet and video production.  Youth ages 16 – 24, who have not graduated from high school or are not enrolled in college, are invited to focus on a variety of resources, and build adaptable skills providing an opportunity to remain in their community with a vocation rather than migrate to larger communities.


Growing an entrepreneurial culture among Alaskan youth with an emphasis on stemming youth out migration, retaining cherished rural Alaska culture and creating more stable and sustainable local rural economies is now possible due to Alaska’s growing rural broadband connectivity.
