Nonprofit Overview

Mission: The native youth leadership alliance (nyla) was founded by a core group of tribal college students and elders to create a native-led organization rooted in indigenous approaches to leadership and community building. Nyla invests in young native americans to spark culturally based community change. This is a multi-year fellowship program that provides culturally based training, resources, and a community of support; to help young native leaders create positive change in their communities.

Programs: The native youth leadership alliance (nyla) connects education to action, and plays a complementary role in the educational process of students. Most native students attend tribal colleges out of motivation to earn a degree or credential that allows them to "give back" to families and communities. Nyla engages young leaders in an experiential, community-focused program of learning and action that fully integrates native communities' cultural contexts. Nyla seeks to complete a circle for young native leaders-connecting education to actions.
