The Supporting and Inspiring Native Youth e-learning orientation was developed to provide programs and mentors with the knowledge and tools needed to recognize the strengths and complexities of Native youth identity. You will be exposed to the landscape of Native communities understanding that there are multiple identities under the umbrella of Native youth. You will be provided an overview of Critical Mentoring, which is a concept that supports the integration of youth voice and youth context into the mentoring relationship. You will also be given helpful tools and resources to identify your own biases and dig deeper into issues affecting Native youth and communities. The ultimate goal of this orientation is to support programs and mentors in identifying opportunities to celebrate Native youth identity through and within the mentoring relationship.
