Champions for Change – Inspirational Native Youth

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown December 26th, 2013 Last Updated on: December 26th, 2013

Champions for Change (CFC), inspired by a 2011 White House initiative, recognizes and encourages inspirational Native youth (ages 14 to 22) working in their tribal or urban Indian communities to promote hope and make a positive impact. Each year, CNAY invites young Native American leaders to apply and get involved in the CFC program.

CNAY invites youth to apply to be a Champion for Change! Champions can include individuals who initiate programs, events, or other efforts to improve the lives of fellow Native youth and Indian Country. CNAY invites you to get creative – submission stories for the CFC application can be in written or video form. We want young people to join us in our work to elevate Native youth voices while providing many leadership opportunities through the CFC program.

For more information on how to apply please visit the Champions for Change website.
