Shareholder Development

Chenega has developed a corporation-wide internship program and a extensive range of continuing education and
professional development training support for Shareholders, their spouses and descendants.

To ensure their success, Shareholders also have access to customized education and career planning. Students are eligible for generous, performance-based scholarships for college degrees or professional certifications, and Chenega provides on-going support in achieving educational goals. We also host Future Quest!, an annual youth outreach workshop designed to give middle and high school students the tools they need to be successful in their post-secondary educational pursuits. Learn more below.

Chenega adults, youth and elders can access personal development activities to insure a bright future including:

  • Education and Career Planning, including skill and interest assessments, on-going advising and coaching, and creation of a strategy that best fits individual interests, abilities, and lifestyles.
  • Scholarships for degree, technical certification, or quick, job-ready training. Along with our scholarships, we provide on-going support in achieving educational goals.
  • Future Quest!, an annual youth outreach workshop designed to give middle and high school students the tools they need to be successful in their educational , cultural and life pursuits.
