IAC’s Youth-Led, Youth Taught MovementFebruary 7, 2017
Following the closing ceremonies of the 30th Annual IAC Membership Meeting, youth attendees assisted IAC staff in mapping out a plan for the 2017 year. Enhancing partnerships in planning efforts for national events, highlighting regional leadership conference sites, and collaborating resources is what they identified as their personal steps upon returning home.
This is a national movement that will serve the grassroots efforts, all to be organized by the next generation of leaders in Indian Country. The Intertribal Agriculture Council is proud of its role in supporting this movement, and eagerly anticipates continuing these efforts in Indian Country to shape where we go from here.
