California Native Youth Collective
Nominations will be accepted from August 29, 2022 - September 16, 2022.
The California Native Youth Collective is an initiative under the Generation Indigenous Network (Gen-I) focused on strengthening Native youth leadership to increase overall community wellness.
We are looking for young leaders who have demonstrated commitment to bettering their communities. This can be done through a school or in a program, on their reservation or urban community. Ambassadors aspire to grow in skills to support their work, connect with other youth leaders, and receive resources through CNAY to amplify their platforms. We invite nominations and self-nominations of individuals who meet the following criteria:
- Self-identify as Native or Indigenous;
- Are between the ages of 18 and 24 years old; and
- Currently reside in California
All nominees, regardless of acceptance, will be named Gen-I Ambassadors and will receive opportunities to engage with CNAY and the Gen-I Network.
Below is the online nomination form for Tribal leaders, community leaders, teachers, mentors, family member, peers and/or self-nomination to nominate an Ambassador for CNAY's California Native Youth Collective (Gen-l).
