About AK Hopes & Dreams

The AK Hopes and Dreams Project was founded in 2015.

Our purpose is to energize and inspire a new generation of young Alaskans to dream big and make the most of the vast opportunities our State has to offer.

The AK Hopes and Dreams Project has developed two youth summits. The Spring conference, entitled "Everything is Possible", is April 23rd at the Embassy Suites in Anchorage. The Fall conference, "A Ripple in the Water", is scheduled for October 2016. These trainings are designed to provide tools for young leaders to take charge of their lives and develop strategies for success as they enter adulthood.


AK Hopes and Dreams Project is a 501(c)(3) Tax ID Number 47-4699742
