The Center is committed to traveling to tribal communities to listen to and learn from young Native Americans about youth priorities, challenges and successes. We hear from and about inspirational Native youth who are taking the lead in tackling community challenges. The Center for Native American Youth is ready to recognize and encourage these youth-led efforts!
The Champions for Change (CFC) program, inspired by a 2011 White House initiative, recognizes and encourages inspirational Native youth (ages 14 to 24) working in their tribal or urban Indian communities to promote hope and make a positive impact.
The application process is now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied! Visit the Center's "2013 Champions" page to read about the five Native youth being highlighted as Champions for Change.
