Mission

The Northern Alaska Indigenous Leadership Academy (NAILA) will help to address Alaska Native community-based wellness and sustainable development through investment in transformative training of local leaders.


Core Partners

NAILA will be administratively housed at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) College of Rural and Community Development and led through a partnership with Ilisagvik College in Barrow and the Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development at UAF.


Approach

NAILA endeavors to build an integrated learning and career development community that explores qualities of Indigenous knowledge and leadership, increases knowledge of healing and wellness, draws insight and wisdom from elders and experienced leaders, and builds a foundation for community sustainability. Indigenous values and educational methodologies will be central to the Academy program and curriculum.


Goal

NAILA will engage a new generation of Alaska Native leaders and provide them with leadership skills to promote community development from within. Participants will become part of a peer network that will continue to foster organic dialogue, partnership, and initiatives, as well as connect them with future opportunities to advance their skills and education.

MISSION:

The Northern Alaska Indigenous Leadership Academy (NAILA) will help address Alaska Native community-based wellness and sustainable development through investment in transformative training of local leaders.

Ilisagvik College and the UAF Department of Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development invite you to apply to the next NAILA.

GENERAL ACADEMY DESCRIPTION:

NAILA is a dynamic and transformative academy, integrating best practices from successful leadership development and training programs. Participants will engage via online / audio-conference in preparation for a face-to-face weeklong intensive program, designed in a retreat format. Participants may earn credit either through UAF or Ilisagvik College.

NAILA has a limited capacity and we can only accept 25 people into the Academy. Full scholarships to cover travel, tuition, lodging and meals will be provided to all accepted applicants. We have experienced that this number of participants allows for strong relationships to be built and adequate opportunity to participate for all. We are planning to accept a broad range of participants from across Northern Alaska, with diversity in culture, gender, and background. Please understand that if you are not accepted for this cohort it is most likely due to a limitation on the spaces we have available.

NAILA will be hosted February 23-28, 2018, location to be determined. Participants must commit to attending the entire face-to-face session (including evenings) as well as pre and post audio-conferences.

The PITAAS Program, University of Alaska Southeast: Alaska Needs More Alaska Native Teachers

In this video short, Native teacher Andrea Durny talks about why she became a teacher and how the Native scholarship program, PITAAS, at the University of Alaska Southeast, helped her achieve her career dreams. PITAAS helped financially and gave her a safety net, or support group of people around her, while in college. Apply: www.uas.alaska.edu/pitaas

In Alaska schools, Alaska Natives make up 25% of the student body and less than 5% of the teaching force. PITAAS–which stands for Preparing Indigenous Teachers and Administrators for Alaska Schools–is a scholarship program with many services designed to meet its goals: more Alaska Native teachers and administrators in Alaskan schools.

Eligible students are Alaska Native students with junior or senior standing enrolled in undergraduate Teacher Preparation Programs, post graduate Teacher Certification Programs, and Graduate Certificates, Endorsements and Master of Education (M.Ed.) Programs.

The PITAAS Program can help you earn your education degree at the University of Alaska Southeast!
