Lead:North is a membership-based young leaders program, which informs Alaskans ages 21-40 about – and engages them in – community and statewide policy issues. The Advisory Council, and the Institute of the North, believes that young Alaskans are committed to a prosperous future in Alaska and are united in wanting to contribute meaningfully to that future. Lead:North provides opportunities for young professionals and leaders to step up into key policy discussions; political and civic engagement; and professional development.
Lead:North activities include networking events, public policy discussions, Young Leaders’ Roundtables, a fiscal policy working group, and special events related to board development and local economic activities. In addition, communities around the state – Sitka, Barrow, Kodiak, Fairbanks, and the Aleutians – have established local chapters that develop unique programs for young leaders.
Lead:North's direction and program activities are coordinated by a diverse group of young professionals.
