The Minnesota Indigenous Youth Freedom Project seeks to develop positive leadership among tribal youth, ages 14-17 years of age. The goals of MIYFP are to:

• Increase the leadership skills and abilities of tribal youth.

• Increase opportunities for youth to demonstrate and build their leadership skills within a community and organizational content.

• Increase collaboration with existing community-based and culturally relevant youth programs within tribal youth.

This program is free of charge, with parents or communities providing transportation to the University of Minnesota-Duluth for the week-long camp and commitment to a community service project that is provided through a grant opportunity. The participants will be provided with food, lodging and activities that include rock-climbing, swimming, Twister Alpine coaster, and much more!
