Thank you to the young CIRI shareholders and descendants who attended Next Gen Day, held Jan. 20 at CIRI’s corporate offices in Anchorage!

Next Gen Day provides an inside look into CIRI and future opportunities available to youth and does so through activities that combine technology with education and mentorship. This year’s participants learned about wellness through traditional foods, received career mentoring from CIRI employees, learned about scholarship and grant opportunities available through The CIRI Foundation, participated in a hands-on craft activity led by Cook Inlet Tribal Council’s Fab Lab and connected with students in Tyonek, Alaska, via video chat.
