Gen-I #OptOutside Call to Action

This month, the Center for Native American Youth in partnership with REI is starting our #OptOutside Call to Action. Meant to help showcase how Native youth interact, use, and view nature and the outdoors, we are asking for your help. Show us how you #OptOutside! With a short video or picture tell us why is nature is important to you, and why it’s important to your culture. We hope this serves as an outlet to be creative and have some fun in the name of Gen-I!

The Gen-I #OptOutside Call to Action is a new way to engage with the Gen-I Network and show how nature and the outdoors impact the lives of Native youth across the country. By participating, you help continue the work of the Generation Indigenous initiative and help the Network continue to evolve and grow.
