The Center for Native American Youth’s Champions for
Change program, a spin-off of a White House initiative, was created to
promote hope in Indian Country by shinning a spotlight on positive, inspirational
stories from young American Indians. In a two-part event the Center for
Native American Youth invites you to join in celebrating five young leaders
who have been selected as Champions for Change on March 4 and 5. In
conjunction with the National Congress of American Indians’ Executive Council
Winter Session, the Center will hold a reception to celebrate its work and
the Champions for Change program on the evening of March 4. A panel
discussion on March 5 will be held to hear these five Champions for Change
share their stories and efforts to promote hope in the Senate Indian Affairs
Hearing Room.

About the Center for Native American Youth
Founded by former US Senator Byron Dorgan, the
Center is a policy program within the Aspen Institute, headquartered in
Washington, DC. The goal of the Center is to bring greater national attention
to the issues facing Native American youth, and to foster solutions, with
special emphasis on youth suicide prevention.
