What is AKYC?
Alaska Youth Conference is a middle school, high school, and college student conference that seeks to empower, equip and send students into their communities to make a positive difference. We want to see this generation filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit with boldness to shift a culture and share the Gospel. Our heart is to see students from across Alaska make a marked impact on their schools, their families, and their communities. It is time for this generation to stand up and fight for Jesus, knowing they are MADE FOR THIS.

Do I have to register now, or can I do it at the door?
