Shungnak TJB Youth Leaders

The Shungnak Teck John Baker Youth Leaders were instrumental in emergency efforts when their village was without plumbing for a whole week due to frozen, burst pipes. They retrieved water and delivered it to elders, teachers and family members. Throughout the year they create PSA’s that inform community members about suicide prevention, healthy living, anti-drug & tobacco use, domestic violence awareness, and education, all in an effort to prevent catastrophes and save lives.
