We understand that the health of these lands and waters go hand-in-hand with the health of our communities. SCS is a partnership organization. We are committed to collaborative efforts, and work to foster and nurture connections with the goal of supporting economically, socially, and environmentally resilient communities. Locally, we work together with partners in Sitka to improve the health of our community, from programs addressing food insecurity to supporting local climate advocacy. We support youth leadership and civic engagement through experiential learning and advocacy. Our youth programs, from Sitka Spruce Tips 4-H to career-pathway internships, are opening doors, building skillsets, and creating opportunities for the next generation of Alaskan leaders.
