New Application Due Date Coming Soon!
On behalf of the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH), we thank you for your interest in Native youth who applied (thus far) and for those who spread the word for NCUIH's 3rd class of National Urban Indian Youth and Young Adult Advisory Council (“Youth Council”) applications. In light of the COVID-19 crisis and pandemic situation, NCUIH has decided to offer Native youth more time by providing a new launch date and application deadline for the 2020 National Urban Indian Youth Council. Once these new dates are determined, we will provide everyone with this new deadline date for the Youth Council applications. We still strongly encourage American Indian/ Alaska Native youth and young adults to submit applications at this time. To learn how to apply, the benefits of joining the Youth Council, and much more, please press on links below.
The National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) invites applications from young adult ambassadors (ages 18-24) located in our urban communities and surrounding areas to participate in NCUIH’s 2020 Class of National Urban Indian Youth and Young Adult Advisory Council (“Youth Council”) members.
Youth Council members will promote awareness of substance misuse, trauma, suicide prevention, and mental health among peers on a national and local level. All project-related activities will be created by and targeted towards American Indian/Alaska Native youth and young adults living in urban communities.
Your application must include the submission of one (1) supporting adult reference. Applicants also have the option to obtain a peer reference or an additional adult reference.
