Brief Description:

MIGIZI provides a strong circle of support that nurtures the educational, social, economic and cultural development of American Indian youth. We provide students in 5 school districts academic and cultural support, two training programs (FPP, GJP) that ensure a professional resume, and opportunities for participants to work with partnership organizations. Our vision is that American Indian youth are acknowledged and honored for their sacred gifts and boundless potential, which they share—as leaders—with their communities and nations and that MIGIZI’s circle of relationships is part of a broader movement that advances success, well-being and social justice.
