Hello Gen-I Community!

Want to connect with your peers and have a discussion about the resources and programs that you would like to see in your community? Join the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) on September 24 at 8:00PM EST for an ONLINE chat to learn from each other about the programs that are working in communities, and the programs and opportunities that other Native youth want to be connected with. Please RSVP here if you plan to join!

As part of the Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) Network, CNAY is hosting a series of Gen-I Engagement Chats online for Native youth, parents and others to get engaged. The online chats will cover difficulties that Native youth face and strategies to address those issues, as well as highlight positive youth efforts and policies that support Native youth. Chat participants will have opportunities to learn from leaders in the field, ask questions, share their perspectives and interact with each other. Participants can also ask questions about the Gen-I Challenge and the Gen-I Youth Ambassador Program. More information about the chat is provided below.
