Six teenagers from Kodiak and Anchorage formed AYEA in 1998 because they wanted an organized, effective outlet for young Alaskans to become involved in the environment. There are now seven AYEA chapters in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Homer, Juneau, the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, Sitka, and Yakutat — with individual members and associate clubs in more than 35 communities in Alaska.
