About Us

Our Mission: To prepare local people for local high-wage jobs.

Yuut Elitnaurviat (YE) is a 501(c)(3) Corporation dedicated to providing training and education opportunities for the people of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Region. Yuut offers culturally relevant and regionally responsive training programs in response to the suffering regional economy and high unemployment rate. Building programs that combine intensive academics and on-the-job training, Yuut is the first regional vocational center to grace the tundra of Western Alaska.

The Board of Directors of Yuut Elitnaurviat is made up of the Executive Directors or CEOs of some of the largest employers in the Y-K Delta. All of the programs and training we offer are done with the approval of, and often in conjunction with, the organizations that make up our board.
