CNAY Community Outreach in North Dakota

The Center for Native American Youth at The Aspen Institute (CNAY) is excited to partner with the Mandan Hidatsa & Arikara (MHA) Nation on creating and supporting a local youth recognition program modeled after CNAY’s Champions for Change. Back in February, MHA Education Department staff accompanied two of their youth leaders to DC during CNAY’s “Champ Week” to shadow the Champions for Change at their leadership trainings and recognition events. In March, CNAY had the privilege and pleasure of visiting tribal communities in North Dakota to learn more about our partners.
