JUNEAU - SERRC-Alaska's Educational Resource Center provides dozens of statewide programs to improve student achievement. The agency's Alaska Close-Up program brings students from around the state to Juneau for weekly sessions to learn how Alaska's government really works. The program is aligned with Alaska Content Standards and includes time with legislators, the governor, classroom work and attending Legislative sessions.
To support this program, the Fred Meyer Fund donated $20,000 to purchase a mobile computer lab for Alaska Close-Up, Government Internships (open to Alaska Close-Up alumni) and Career Connections (supported job shadowing and exploration activities). All of these programs are designed to create Alaska's future leaders and serve students from around the state.
SERRC-Alaska's Educational Resource Center is a nonprofit agency that provides educational solutions and services from Metlakatla to Barrow. The agency employs 100 staff members that work out of the agency's offices in Anchorage and Juneau.
