Located on the Yukon River 300 miles from the nearest highway, Young Life Galena thinks the world of kids. We believe that they deserve to know what life can hold for them. Our staff and volunteer leaders are caring adults who come sharing that hope as well as fun and lasting friendships with kids.
Galena Young Life serves both the Sydney C Huntington High School and Galena Interior Learning Academy (GILA); a boarding school that serves over 200 students from over 70 villages all over rural Alaska.. .
The Role of a Young Life Leader
Leaders are committed to being involved with kids' lives -- from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what's important to them. Our leaders help kids consider the direction of their lives, and they offer hope for their future.
