Make Plans for Milwaukee!

May 11, 2011

Planning to attend the National Congress of American Indians’ Mid-Year Conference in Milwaukee?  Make sure to bring a young person with you!

The Center will be hosting a youth summit on June 13th at the conference, and it’s going to be a time for Native youth to hear from great speakers like Senator Byron Dorgan and Famous Dave’s Restaurants founder Dave Anderson; hear about programs youth programs that are making a difference around the country; and most important, to tell their stories. Not only that, but Nike has donated gym bags for the summit, and each young person who attends will get one until we run out.

Tribal leaders and tribal youth program staff are also welcome to attend, and we hope as many do as possible.  Contact us if you have any questions.  It should be a great event!
