The Youth Organizing team here at CNVP, is excited to share with you that we will be hosting our Indigenous Youth Organizing Academy  (IYOA) 2.0 Training in person this coming March 2022.

The purpose of our 2.0 Training is to dive deeper into transformational community organizing and build an intentional leadership pathway for Native and Indigenous young people to become organizers.
This training is open to all self-identifying American Indian / Alaska Native and Indigenous Youth, ages 16- 25yr, living nearby and within the LA Basin. Unfortunately, we have a capacity for only 20 youth participants, so please apply as soon as possible because we will be accepting applications on a first-come, first-serve basis.
