As part of Gen-I, the Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute is launching a National Native Youth Network to provide a sustainable platform to reach out, engage, and provide educational and economic opportunities for Native youth. The network, which is one component of the larger Gen-I initiative, will focus on support for attainment of higher education, entrepreneurship training, mentoring, and creating a platform to integrate Native youth voices into the national dialogue.
