Native Youth, you are invited to attend a kickoff event for Generation Indigenous! President Obama launched the Gen-I Initiative at the 2014 White House Tribal Nations Conference to focus on improving the lives of Native youth by removing the barriers that stand between Native youth and their opportunity to succeed. Through new investments and increased engagement, this initiative takes a comprehensive, culturally appropriate approach to ensure all young Native people can reach their full potential.
Join representatives from The White House, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Administration for Native Americans, and the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow for this exciting kickoff event! Native youth in Grades 9-12 are eligible to attend on Thursday, April 23rd, to learn about Gen-I and to take the Gen-I Challenge to make a positive impact in your community!
The event will be held on Thursday, April 23rd, 11:30 AM – 4:00 PM at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Registration will open at 11:30 AM, the event will begin promptly at 1 PM MDT. Lunch will be provided.
We hope you can join us in celebrating, you, Gen-I and working with us toward a better future for Native Youth!
