Center for Native American Youth to Host Online Chat

The following information was supplied by the Center for Native American Youth.

As part of Generation Indigenous (Gen-I), the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) is hosting a series of Gen-I Engagement Chats online for youth. We have had two chats so far and both have had great participation from youth, community members and tribal leaders. If you are a Native youth interested in learning more about the Gen-I Challenge or CNAY’s Youth Ambassador program, join CNAY on April 22 at 8:00PM EST for the third ONLINE chat. Please RSVP here if you plan to join!

The chat will focus on the Gen-I Challenge, with a special emphasis on taking the Challenge and a preview of the Gen-I kick-off event at Gathering of Nations in Albuequerque, NM on April 23. Participants can ask questions about the Challenge, share updates on their progress, talk through their process in completing the Challenge and discuss issues that Native youth face. More information about the Gen-I Engagement Chat is provided below.
