11th Annual Native Youth Summit

  Caring for Ourselves & Community

The 11th Annual Native Youth Summit will be a 2 day event and is a powerful leadership development experience that connects, challenges, and cultivates 25 Native youth ranging in age from 13 to 17 years old from across the state of New Mexico.

Focused on investing in and empowering our leaders of tomorrow, the annual Native Youth Summit provides a unique opportunity for the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women to inspire and support the next generation of New Mexico’s tribal leaders in the fight to eliminate violence against our Native women and children.

The Native Youth Summit provides unique and engaging opportunities to address the issues our youth face today, such as domestic violence in the home, cyber-bullying, teen dating violence, safety in a technological world and bystander violence. Our young leaders will be inspired and equipped to return to their communities, support and empower their peers, and make healthy value-based choices using smart strategie*

Participants will receive a $200.00 stipend
