Onward & Upward's mission is to strengthen youth, families, and community.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Onward & Upward, an Alaska-based youth education center, is at the forefront of the prevention and early intervention movement to strengthen protective factors and decrease risk factors, leading to overall positive outcomes for our students. Our innovative curriculum and holistic Strengthening Kids model promotes student successes by inspiring positive self-concept, empowering healthy self-efficacy, and connecting students with their family, friends, peers, school, community, and environment by developing prosocial intelligence. Utilization of a strengths-based approach maximizes each youth’s inherent abilities and resiliency, not only minimizing risks such as substance abuse, depression, and the effects of adverse childhood experiences, but also supporting the development of mindful, positive, and engaged members of their community. Your donations made through the Pick.Click.Give. program are an essential component to helping us help youth, their families, and the community as a whole. Thank you for your generous contribution!
