The Center for Native American Youth at The Aspen Institute is partnering with the Congressional Native Staff Association, the Senate Diversity Initiative, and the House Diversity Initiative to provide a unique training opportunity for Native youth in the DC area. This training will provide Native youth with some of the skills, strategies, and tools necessary to be a competitive candidate for careers on the Hill. Participants will speak with current Native Hill staff and learn directly from the directors of the Senate and House Diversity Initiatives.
The training will take place on Monday, July 23rd from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST. The exact location will be shared with registrants at a later time. Space is limited, so register ASAP to secure your spot.
The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) estimates that in 2016, 22% of AI/ANs lived on reservations or other US Census-defined tribal areas while 60% of AI/ANs lived in metropolitan areas.
"Donating time to work with Native youth, no matter how much or how little, is still time that could make a huge difference."
