Video of Today’s Native Leaders Training in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
About 70 Native American youth and their advisors from tribes across the nation addressed issues such as suicide and loss of culture at a leadership training that took place in October 2014 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
The Today’s Native Leaders (TNL) training, which focused on culturally relevant leadership development, included a curriculum promoting team building activities, action planning & event promotion, developing community service projects, and guidance for creating a UNITY youth council. Several youth from the National UNITY Council Executive Committee and 25 Under 25 Leadership Program served as youth trainers.
The following video was taken during the event and shows some of the youth receiving training and working in teams to design and plan service projects that may be implemented in their respective home communities.
