The Poarch Band of Creek Indians recently contributed a generous gift of $20,000 to the Center for Native American Youth to support its efforts to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of indigenous youth in the United States. Since beginning his service on the CNAY Board of Advisors, Poarch Band of Creek Indians Vice-Chair Robert McGhee has remained closely engaged with CNAY’s work through his participation on the Executive Committee. He’s also facilitated a strong relationship between CNAY and Poarch Creek tribal leadership, and provided critical guidance to CNAY’s work as a tribal leader.

As an organization driven by the priorities of Native youth and the tribal communities they serve, investments by tribal governments are critical to our work. This contribution by Poarch Band will go a long way in supporting our leadership development programs such as Champions for Change and our community roundtables that provide Native youth a platform locally to share their priorities with us. The CNAY Board and staff are proud to count Poarch Band as a tribal partner in our work.

If you are interested in contributing to the Center for Native American Youth, consider donating today or sponsoring CNAY’s 5th annual anniversary reception in February, where the fourth class of CNAY Champions for Change will be recognized and honored for their work to positively impact their tribal and urban Indian communities.
