The Annual Native Youth Summit is a four-day powerful leadership development experience that connects, challenges, and cultivates a cohort of 40 Native youth ranging in age from 13 to 17 years old from across the state of New Mexico.

Focused on investing in and empowering our leaders of tomorrow, the annual Native Youth Summit provides a unique opportunity for the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women to inspire and support the next generation of New Mexico’s tribal leaders in the fight to eliminate violence against our Native women and children.

The Native Youth Summit provides unique and engaging opportunities to address the issues our youth face today, such as domestic violence in the home, cyber-bullying, teen dating violence, safety in a technological world and bystander violence. Our young leaders will be inspired and equipped to return to their communities, support and empower their peers, and make healthy value-based choices using smart strategies.

“We Are the Movement means that If we all come together we can actually make what we want to work. It also means that as a youth summit, all youth have a voice and a chance to speak up to make the movement happen. It’s a very powerful saying and very encouraging.” – 2017 Participant
