Gen-I Career Success Fellowship
Native American youth often face tremendous obstacles to success, but together we can leverage the power of youth to inspire and support each other, build new skills, and create ladders of opportunity.
As part of the Generation Indigenous movement (Gen-I), the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) and Native American Finance Officers Association (NAFOA) have partnered to develop the Gen-I Career Success Fellowship.
The fellowship is designed to create successful career pathways for Native youth through online skill-building, fostering leadership development, promoting local civic engagement, and facilitating direct connections with potential employers.
Native American Career Success Academy
Fellows first participate in the online Native American Career Success Academy (NACSA), a free curriculum open to college-age students (ages 18-24).
The curriculum consists of two modules: Career Preparation and Personal Finance. The coursework is designed to help Native youth develop the skill set and confidence required to become financially responsible young adults and successful young professionals.
Select NACSA participants who complete the curriculum and demonstrate initiative will have the opportunity to continue their learning as Gen-I Career Success Fellows.
This year’s fellowship will culminate with selected youth participating in a special leadership summit and youth track at NAFOA’s 35th Annual Conference in San Francisco, April 23-24, 2016. Join us for a webinar on Friday, October 28, 2016 to learn more about this exciting new program!
