Resources for Youth

At Alaska Youth Advocates, we develop resources independently and in partnership to share with the community. We also list some of the most valuable partner resources to result in greater capacity and strength to help young people. No single organization can do this alone.

Opportunities for Youth

Que Pasa Anchorage
Originally as a Facebook but now available as a website and Google calendar, Que Pasa Anchorage? provides up to date events and opportunities for youth. Visit Que Pasa? and find out what’s up.

Anchorage Youth Central
Anchorage Youth Central connects youth 13-24 with opportunities and services to assist in difficult times or when a youth wants to get involved in their community.

Legal

Emancipation Handbook
Emancipation is considered a freeing of minors from certain legal restrictions that are imposed because they have not yet reached the age of majority (18 years old). In other words, when a youth under the age of 18 is legally emancipated, they acquire the same civil (non-criminal) status as an adult. If you are interested in the steps to take to become emancipated, please download our emancipation handbook and contact us.

Youth Law Guide
Have a legal question but don’t know who to ask? The Alaska Youth Law Guide is a resource to help young Alaskans understand the law and how it may affect them. You can find general information about many of the legal issues teens and young adults are likely to encounter, and some resources for getting more information or assistance.

Health

HIV/AIDS 101
This is a HIV Basics interactive training. Take the training and let us know what was new to you. Want to know more about HIV or how to get involved? Contact us today.

iknowmine.org
iknowmine provides truthful and accurate information that youth can trust in order for them to be in control of their own health and to live healthy lives. There is great information on topics such as STDs, pregnancy, nutrition, and much more.
