Our YEP crew has been hard at work and playing hard! After a week of building trails and cleaning up parks and beaches, we participated in a ropes course hosted by SAIL to build trust with our team. We also learned how to build our growth and comfort zones within ourselves and had a blast!

Happy Pride, friends. Here is a sneak peak at Shéiyi X̱aat Hít, the new youth shelter that will be opening soon!

Zach Gordon opened the Teen Center 75 years ago to be a place for ALL youth to be loved, safe, and supported. We could not be more proud to be continuing this tradition with so many incredible partners.

Gunalchéesh to our community for making this a reality. We are so grateful.

Registration is now open for Tlingit & Haida’s summer Youth Employability Services (YES) program! Although tribal citizen youth will not have direct employment opportunities this year, our 477 Employment & Training department is still committed to helping them sharpen their job skills development.

The summer YES program's theme for this year is "Writing My Narrative". The program will run June 14th - August 13th and is available to tribal youth who are 14-24 years of age and meet eligibility requirements.
Youth will participate in Zoom webinar sessions held twice a week based on their selected program track and will work in small teams to complete a program project related to employability.

Big news for youth!

In anticipation of the CDC recommending the use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine for youth ages 12-15, CBJ, Juneau Public Health Center, and Bartlett Regional Hospital are planning vaccine clinics for all youth ages 12-18 on Friday, May 14 and Monday, May 17. Families can sign up to have their child vaccinated at a pending clinic now at the links below or call 586-6000. For planning purposes, please register by this Wednesday, May 12:

• Friday, May 14, 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Thunder Mountain High School (Register here: bit.ly/3y2fIjl)
• Friday, May 14, 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaa.at Kalé (Register here: bit.ly/2SxMYi8)
• Monday, May 17, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School (Register here: bit.ly/2R2ACOS)
• Monday, May 17, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Floyd Dryden Middle School (Register here: bit.ly/3w2iSlz)

Again, any child in Juneau age 12 to 18 – the child does not have to be enrolled in the Juneau School District – is welcome to get a vaccine at these clinics and may attend whichever one is most convenient. A parent or caregiver accompanying their child is also welcome to sign up for a free vaccination. Nurses and pediatricians will be at the clinics administering vaccinations. Capital City Fire/Rescue will help monitor students after their shot for any potential reactions.

Youth ages 12-17 must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver at the clinic. If a parent or caregiver is not able to be at the clinic, a parent permission form (find here: bit.ly/33uxGwS) and pre-vaccination screening form (find here: bit.ly/3tFUX9D) are required to be printed, completed, and sent to school with the child. The permission form provides signed parental consent for the vaccine and the screening form provides vaccinators with important information on the day of the clinic.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today extended the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine to children 12 to 15. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is set to meet Wednesday to discuss whether to recommend the vaccine to that age group. The clinics are pending CDC adopting the committee’s recommendation.
