Our youth are our future leaders and we are strongly committed to their success. Each year the Phoenix Indian Center hosts a Youth Leadership Day, planned closely with local organizations, focusing on leadership, college and career readiness, substance abuse prevention, and cultural enrichment. This FREE conference is open to all self-identifying American Indian high school students from across the Phoenix-Mesa Metropolitan Area and surrounding communities.

Conference Goals:

· To establish youth’s career goals,

· To understand and identify barriers to higher education and workforce,

· To have parent involvement in learning prevention strategies as well as developing youth’s guided success strategies, and

· To provide youth the skills to achieve successful, healthy, and balanced lives focusing on the future.

This Leadership Day will feature many exciting events, including:

· Career exploration, college and job readiness preparation,

· Hands-on team building activities,

· Identify barriers to success and establish drug and alcohol prevention skills, and

· Cultural enrichment activities facilitated by American Indian speakers.
