Garden Warriors who demonstrate maturity and commitment to succeeding in school are invited to join our year-round Youth Leaders group. It is an opportunity for Native youth to take leadership in the community around nutrition, health and food justice issues. We work together to become advocates and examples for our community and reconnect to a traditional relationship with our food.
Our goals are to:
- Deepen our understanding of Food Justice and connect to a larger movement
- Share Food Justice concepts with our community
- Participate in food sovereignty
- Work on our own personal health and wellness with an emphasis on diabetes prevention
