Dai s’la Generation Indigenous (Welcome in the Coquille language):
This Gen-I NOW message provides an update about the Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) Youth Challenge!
UPDATE: Youth who sign up for the Gen-I Youth Challenge BY FRIDAY, APRIL 10 will be eligible to attend the 2015 White House Tribal Youth Gathering in Washington, DC this summer.
The next three youth to sign up for the Youth Challenge will receive a NIKE N7 GIFT! See details about the Gen-I Youth Challenge below.
CLICK HERE TO ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE TODAY!
Step 1: ACT. Within 30 days of accepting the challenge, work with other youth in your community or at your school to do something positive of your choosing (for example: do a volunteer project with a local organization or charity, visit with elders in your community, or become a mentor to a younger person). You can use Toolkits from the National Native Youth Network and their partners to help you in this work. Your local tribal youth council, urban tribal youth group, or Native youth organization may also be resources.
Step 2: CAPTURE. Document your community efforts through a short summary (3-4 sentences) and with photos and video!
Step 4: PARTICIPATE. By participating in the National Native Youth Network, you may be invited to apply to send a representative to the first ever White House Tribal Youth Gathering in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 2015.
Make sure to accept the challenge HERE.
