We Are Educators.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Alaska EXCEL. I am inspired by the hundreds of junior high and high school students who have participated in the wide array of EXCEL sessions offered throughout the year. For many students, it is the only chance they will have to participate in career tours, job shadows, navigate living in an urban setting, experience dorm life on a college campus, understand all of the post-secondary training options available, and participate in a short work internship prior to graduating from high school.

I invite you to reach out to our team to learn more about Alaska EXCEL and our current programs.

Respectfully,

Carol Wilson
