9/19 Gen-I NOW: Become a Champion for Change

Champions for Change recognizes Native American youth leaders who are making a positive impact in their communities. We select five Native youth from throughout the United States to share their stories on a national platform, receive tailored leadership and development opportunities, and grow their advocacy initiatives with our support. Champions receive an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, DC, where they network with high-level decision-makers, meet their congressional representatives, and get trained on how to best amplify their advocacy work.
