The major focus of Take Wing Alaska is to provide mentored experiential learning for Alaska Native rural students transitioning to urban post-secondary education. The program's long-term vision is for these students to return to their communities to share their knowledge and experiences.
In addition, Take Wing Alaska provides the opportunity for educators to attend a cross-cultural immersion Alaska Native culture camp. The camp experience focuses on Alaska Native peoples, their culture, and their ways of teaching, learning, and living.
