"Supporting Mat-Su Youth"
Youth focused community outreach is our mission. Funding, with exception to the Sea Hawker / Seahawks Alaska Community Outreach, is solely directed at youth needs in the Mat-Su Valley.
Mat-Su Sea Hawkers serves as driving force providing participation assistance, education, and volunteerism.
Our outreach champions community betterment and promotes active lifestyles and easily accessible opportunities for developing youth health, wellness, and leadership skills.
