    Description

    Tourism in rural Alaska is an education curriculum with worldwide relevance. Students have started small businesses, obtained employment in the tourism industry and gotten in touch with their people.

    The Developing Alaska Rural Tourism collaborative project has resulted in student scholarships, workshops on website development, marketing, small business development, and customer service. Project results include community profile updates and, regionally, a business inventory, market research, website, branding and a marketing plan. All topics relate to the Copper River Basin’s current economy, culture and heritage. Students learn about local natural and cultural resources, and are empowered to use and/or conserve them.
