Abstract: Youth Area Watch (YAW) is designed to involve students in working with scientists while making a meaningful contribution to research &/or restoration in oil spill affected communities. Youth are trained by scientists to design and conduct long term monitoring projects. In addition to learning current scientific sampling and research techniques (as mandated by Alaska State & National Science Standards), they return to their villages and survey community members for input toward designing a local environmental monitoring and/or restoration project. Youth Area Watch fosters long-term commitment to the goals set out in the Restoration Plan of 1994 and offers a positive community investment in that process. Participating communities in FY 07-09 will be Chenega Bay, Cordova, Tatitlek, Valdez, Whittier, Anchorage and Wasilla.
