Alaska ICE Mission

Adults with a few of Huslia's youngest community members

The Alaska Initiative for Community Engagement (Alaska ICE) serves as the youth advocacy branch of the Association of Alaska School Boards (AASB). Through the 40 Developmental Assets and various community engagement efforts, Alaska ICE works to give Alaskans at the local level the information, tools and assistance to work together and engage in the shared responsibility of preparing Alaska’s children and youth for the future.

“Changing the environment for youth—the support they receive from teachers and other adults in their lives— will prove to be a far more effective approach to increasing youth assets and improving youth outcomes than the more common ‘fix the kids’ approach.”

– American Institutes for Research, Alaska ICE Summative Report, 2009
