CNAY is currently searching for our fourth cohort of Champions for Change! Youth must be Native leaders between the ages of 14 and 22 years old. The application deadline is January 11, 2016.
The CFC application asks youth to share with CNAY about their youth-led efforts to effect change in their tribal or urban Indian communities. Previous Champions have worked on issues ranging from teen tobacco use prevention to suicide prevention to healthy and active lifestyles and so much more. You can learn more about our 2013, 2014 and 2015 Champions for Change by visiting CNAY’s website.
In addition to sharing your story, the application process requires three recommendations from people who can speak about your leadership qualities and efforts. Two recommendations will come from adults, and one will come from a peer.
Additionally, adults, tribal leaders, and friends can nominate a young person for the program. CNAY will reach out to nominated youth and invite them to submit an application. To access the CFC Nomination Form, click here.
