The Native Youth Community Project is looking for community members who would like to come into our schools to help support students. The time commitment, schedule, and activities are flexible, but could include things like helping in a classroom, sharing a story or activity, mentoring, or simply being a positive presence.

Please contact the school principals to discuss opportunities and compensation.

We've seen the difference it makes when the community is involved in schools and we will continue to explore and develop more opportunities for collaboration. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with other questions or ideas.
