Tengluni/Take Wing Alaska

Tengluni heading

Tengluni is the new version of Take Wing Alaska, a program to support students in post high school planning through immersion experiences held at post-secondary institutions across the state. Applications are due in late November of a student's junior year, and the immersion program begins beginning in the spring of their junior year of high school and finishes in the fall of their senior year. 

Tengluni, which means "to take wing" or "take flight" in Yup'ik, is a partnership between the Alaska Humanities Forum and Calista Education and Culture, supporting students in Kuspuk, Lower Kuskokwim and Yupiit School Districts. 

Students will learn to:
  • set goals
  • identify career interests
  • find and apply to programs for continued education and training
  • find and apply for financial aid
  • visit college campuses
  • apply Yuuyaraq teachings and values
