About the Program
The Brave Heart Fellowship works to uplift youth voices while addressing the representation gap and inequities facing Indigenous Peoples in the fight for climate justice. The duration of the Fellowship will last from January 2024 – June 2024.
The Brave Heart Fellowship is for self-identified Native American and Indigenous youth, ages 18-24 years old, living in one of the following states: Alaska, Idaho, Northern California, Oregon and Washington. This youth-led program equips Native youth to advocate and mobilize across their communities to protect traditional lands, waterways, and sacred sites. Through a culturally immersive curriculum, BHF prioritizes intergenerational learning spaces with tribal leaders and community elders who have long been on the front lines of climate change.
