Gen-I Movement Builders Fellowship Deadline EXTENDED

As part of the Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) initiative, the Center for Native American Youth is launching a new fellowship for youth ages 18-24. The Gen-I Movement Builders Fellowship (Gen-I MBF) is a six-month intensive leadership development program that aims to strengthen the voice and role of Native American youth in broader social justice movements. Over the course of six months, five Fellows will gather for two in-person convenings, two virtual convenings, and one Fresh Tracks training expedition. At the end of six months, Fellows will have a small “Innovation Fund” which they will jointly use on a project aimed at strengthening the voice of Native youth in social justice movements.
