NEW CNAY RELEASE: Voices of Native Youth Report Vol. III

NEW
RELEASE: Voices of Native Youth Report Vol. III

Native
American youth are the most at-risk population in the United States, facing
serious challenges in a number of areas, including health, education, and youth
development opportunities. The Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) seeks to
reverse the impact of historic neglect by raising awareness of these issues,
fostering solutions, and highlighting success stories in Indian County. Our
team is committed to creating meaningful relationships with tribes, programs
and Native youth by organizing active outreach in tribal and urban Indian
communities across the country. Over the past three years, CNAY has held over
75 youth roundtables in 17 different states to learn about youth priorities,
challenges and successes.

The
purpose of the Voices of Native Youth Report series
is to summarize and
share what CNAY has learned during these youth roundtables in Indian Country.
By inviting youth to the table for dialogue it helps guide CNAY’s efforts and
makes sure that their voices are present at the national level. The Voices of
Native Youth Report Vol. III is part of an annual effort to provide current
feedback from Native youth regarding challenges and successes in Indian
Country.

The
Voices of Native Youth Report Vol. III highlights:

  • Key discussion themes from 25 youth
    roundtables facilitated in six different communities in 2013;
  • Native youth perspectives on education,
    health and wellness, cultural preservation, child welfare, racial equity and
    extracurricular activities; and
  • Resources shared by CNAY with Native youth
    and/or tribal and urban Indian communities that respond to challenges and/or
    programming ideas expressed by young Native Americans.
