The Shared Beringian Heritage Program is committed to working with young people and supporting educational projects and opportunities. The program has supported many youth projects over the years, like the "Lost Dances" involving kids from Kotzebue; the Nome Community Center Youth Exchange; the West High School "Expedition Anadyr," and GoNorth!'s "What's Climate Change to You" project. At the 2011 Beringia Days International Conference in Nome, Alaska, a group of young people from around the Beringia region gathered to explore ideas and make recommendations for future youth projects in four subject areas: archeology, cultural preservation, climate change, and subsistence. Some of these recommendations are reflected in current projects and others continue to provide ideas for future collaborations.
