Hecla’s Responsible Actions

Investing in Our Future Through Education

Investing in education has been a long-held priority for Hecla, and we have developed customized programs such as the Pathways to Mining Careers program in Alaska that support the educational needs of our communities and our workforce.

Our major focus for this program is actually developing mine mechanics for people who can go to work in high demand jobs here at the Hecla Greens Creek operation. It’s a really great partnership that we have with Hecla,” says Rick Caulfield, Chancellor, University of Alaska Southeast. We’re very grateful for the investment that they’ve made in our program at the university because we have that shared commitment to building a workforce locally here in southeast Alaska.
