Alaska Crossings guides crowd around a crew from Air Station Sitka on March 7, during a demonstration of a Coast Guard MH-60T Jayhawk at Wrangell Airport. The purpose of the exercise was to introduce them to the station's mission in the region, as well as to provide some context for how it can help in an emergency.

Alaska Crossings is gearing up for its 2018 season, with guide training formally starting last week.

The youth-oriented behavioral health program has operated out of Wrangell since its inception, back in 2001. Originally a program of Alaska Island Community Services, Crossings is now under the Southeast Alaska Rural Health Consortium umbrella since it acquired AICS last year.

Designed to help people between the ages of 12 and 18 years, Crossings combines therapeutic interventions with outdoor and expeditionary activities, intended to foster a process of change and personal healing. ​
