Wisdom of the Elders is inviting Native American older high school plus college-age students in the Portland area to serve as peer mentors for Discovering Yidong Xinag*. This Native American youth leadership initiative is designed to engage Native youth in environmental and climate studies through service learning by serving as peer mentors to middle and high school youth. They will have opportunities to learn mentoring and leadership skills; learn about their local ecosystem, explore higher education in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) fields, and pursue STEAM career pathways; and learn how to produce a short video about a local environmental issue

(*means “The Old Wisdom” in the Athabascan language)
