Focused on investing in and empowering our leaders of tomorrow, the annual Native Youth Summit provides a unique opportunity for the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women to inspire and support the next generation of New Mexico’s tribal leaders in the fight to eliminate violence against our Native women and children.
The Native Youth Summit provides unique and engaging opportunities to address the issues our youth face today, such as domestic violence in the home, cyber-bullying, teen dating violence, safety in a technological world and bystander violence. Our young leaders will be inspired and equipped to return to their communities, support and empower their peers, and make healthy value-based choices using smart strategies.
Space is limited to 40 New Mexico students. Stay tuned for more information and registration link.
