Class Activities

Classroom activities at Raven's Quest Summer Institute were highly varied. They included small group discussions, lectures, guest speakers, team building activities, research, and writing. Topics included cultural diversity, counseling skills, behavioral health occupations, ethics, confidentiality, and many more. Students also learned about opportunities for working in the behavioral health field in rural Alaska. They were introduced to the various behavioral health degree programs in the University of Alaska system, and had workshops around the topics of financial aid, resume writing, and job interviews. During the 8 week Summer Institute, students were given the opportunity to work on boosting academic skills. Some students worked on writing, while others worked on increasing their reading speed, introductory statistics, and learning how to use Excel.
