Call to Action: Nonprofits

A Call to Action for Nonprofits

Storyteller Application: Connect us with Native-led and Native-driven promising practices demonstrating positive impact on Native youth. To kick-off our partnership with Gen-I and to lift up community efforts for meaningful support of Native youth, NAP and Gen-I are hosting the event Generation Indigenous: Raising Impact with Innovation and Proven Strategies on August 26, 2016. Ten innovation and success storytellers will be selected through a competitive process to make a 5-7 minute presentation. A joint panel of youth judges and key philanthropy partners will assess the story presentations based on addressing gaps and disparities and championing community assets, cultural competency, leadership that reflects the community served, and the impact on Native youth. Storytellers must submit a full application by Monday, August 8, 2016 at 5:oo pm (EST). Those who are not selected to present at this event may have the opportunity to be highlighted in Native Americans in Philanthropy newsletter and publications, as well as present at regional philanthropy convenings.
