The National UNITY Council Southwest Representative Chenoa Scippio started attending planning meetings for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Native Women event taking place in February. Scippio shared how “over winter break I volunteered at the Striking Eagle Native American Invitational Basketball Tournament and I helped out in the concessions. I also gave presentations to a few of the teams about youth leadership development.”
December It is important to give my time back to the youth in my community. I think it is important to give youth the tools to see their own potentials to become leaders in their own communities. It’s so awesome to see youth wanting to be more active and more involved in making important decisions.
