A network tailored for Arctic Youth

The Arctic Youth Network strives to connect young people from around the Arctic and the world, while providing them with the tools and experience they need to create change locally and internationally.

View our overview report

The Arctic Youth Network has several program streams designed to support youth in:

  • developing as leaders in their communities
  • engaging in the institutions and organizations acting in the north
  • facilitating collaboration across borders and cultures.

Explore them in the tabs below:

The Arctic Youth Network Member Facebook Group is a platform for sharing opportunities, connecting with others, and learning more about what’s going on in other parts of the Arctic.

The AYN and other members post about events, opportunities, and topics of shared interest. The AYN even occasionally runs application processes for other organizations for things such as conferences and advisory boards, plus our own programs.

Join the member group, subscribe to our email newsletter, and follow along on Facebook and Instagram!

AYX, the Arctic Youth Network's chapter system

AYX is the Arctic Youth Network’s regional chapter system. These chapters provide a framework for connecting, empowering, and informing youth who are working together to drive Arctic change their own way. Chapters don’t have a set purpose, but are a structure to bring people together to address regional priorities with the support of our global network.

Check out the AYX page to learn more, join an existing chapter, or start your own!
