Many of us have experienced the positive impact of mentorship. We know that through intergenerational relationships, wisdom, care, tradition, love, accountability, and many other values can significantly shape and form young people. Traditionally in Native culture, knowledge was passed from one generation to another through camping experiences and extended time together. Weekend retreats and camping environments creates an extended opportunity for relational connection and communication. As a ministry, CYAK values these intergenerational relationships, and works to provide opportunities for these relationships to exist and thrive. CYAK has partnered with the local church to hold several mentoring retreats in various villages in Western Alaska, and hopes to continue these into the future.
