We offer this program for FREE to young people in Bristol Bay and depend on continued support from a wide range of organizations and individuals. You can help cover a student’s travel and learning cost by sponsoring a student for $250 or an amount you can afford. (Checks can be sent to BBHLT at PO Box 1388, Dillingham, Alaska 99576.)

If you are interested in supporting the Academy by donating gear, providing an internship for an academy graduate, or other sponsorship opportunities, please contact Nelli at or 907-230-7121.
