This listserv item is a reminder about the Champions
for Change application!
The Center for
Native American Youth is still collecting youth applications for our new
Champions for Change program. During the Center’s travels to Indian Country
we hear from and about inspirational Native youth who are taking the lead in
tackling community challenges and working with peers to improve lives of
Native Americans across the country. The Center is ready to recognize and
encourage these youth-led efforts!
The Center is calling for young Native Americans (ages 14 to 24) across
Indian Country to submit their stories of leadership and service in tribal
and urban Indian communities, schools, and programs across the country. These
stories will be collected and reviewed by the Center and five finalists will
be selected and recognized at an event in early 2013 in Washington, DC. The
Center invites you to get creative — story submissions can be in a written
or video form. Check out the Center’s
website to watch a short introductory video about the program and learn
about the Champions for Change submission categories!
Applications include an application form; three letters of
recommendation (two adult forms and one peer form); and a responses to
Champions for Change questions in essay or video form. Click here
for the online application, or download the PDF
application. For more information, contact Josie Raphaelito at the Center
for Native American Youth at firstname.lastname@example.org

national attention to the issues facing Native American youth, and to foster
