Gen-I Engagement Online Chat on 4/8 at 8pm EST

As part of Generation Indigenous (Gen-I), the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) is hosting a series of Gen-I Engagement Chats online for youth. We had our first chat two weeks ago and had a lot of great participation from youth, community members and tribal leaders. If you are a Native youth interested in learning more about the Gen-I Challenge, join CNAY on April 8 at 8:00PM EST for the second ONLINE chat!

The chat will focus on the Gen-I Challenge, with a special emphasis on taking the Challenge before the April 10 deadline to be eligible for the first ever White House Tribal Youth Gathering. Participants can ask questions about the Challenge, share updates on their progress, talk through their process in completing the Challenge and discuss issues that Native youth face. More information about the Gen-I Engagement Chat is provided below.

Chat Details:

  • Date: April 8
  • Time: 8:00 PM EST
  • Where: (directions below)
  • Topic: Gen-I Challenge
  • Discussion Question: Why should foundations and corporations support and invest in Native youth?
