The National Indian Health Board is proud to announce that we are currently accepting applications for this year’s Native Youth Health Summit. The Summit this year is being hosted by the Navajo Nation and will take place in Window Rock, AZ, September 4-9, as an official pre-conference event to the Annual Consumer Conference. The Youth Summit always serves to energize all youth and adults involved – as there is no better investment in our future than investing in our youth.
The Youth Summit is a wonderful and exciting opportunity to assist youth to grow in their own health advocacy and knowledge. The Summit will allow participants to develop their own digital stories that they can then take back home to share with their Tribes, Health Board, Area and friends. The Summit will also feature fitness activities, educational forums, and some fun activities that will bring the participants outsides and interacting with the community.
As national advocates, there are numerous ways you can support the Native Youth Health Summit.
1.) Encourage youth in your Area, Tribe or organization to apply to attend the Youth Summit
2.) Sponsor youth and chaperones to attend by paying for their travel to Arizona
3.) Assist youth with securing chaperones to accompany them to Arizona
4.) Spread the word far and wide to Tribes, youth organizations, schools, etc. in your region and networks.
