Yukon-Koyukuk Center

Galena

The center provides educational services, including local and audio conference courses, financial aid information and other student support to a total of nine communities located along the Yukon and Koyukuk River systems. Approximately 73 percent of the population is Alaska Native, predominantly Athabascan. It is dispersed over a geographical area in excess of 60,000 square miles. Air travel is the only means of transportation in this region, because none of the communities are accessible by road. The area is generally characterized by high unemployment.  However, there is a growing interest in Construction Trades Technology, Tribal Management, Eco-tourism, Rural Human Services, and Alaska Native Language instruction.
