Bismarck Regional Native Clubs Gathering

Welcome! This Web page is a resource for participants of the 2014 Bismarck Regional Native Clubs Gathering, including Club staff, board members, and/or Tribal leaders. It has information that was shared during the gathering in Bismarck, ND from August 26-27, 2014.

Leaders from Native Boys & Girls Clubs across six upper Midwest states gathered together for the first of five regional cluster trainings. Over 80 participants from sixteen organizations joined together to teach, learn, and interact with other professionals from Native Clubs and Sites.

Participants were able to sustain and respect each community’s unique cultural values, traditions, and ways while building upon the vision of the Native Services Unit (NSU) and practicing integral concepts of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) movement. The event offered programmatic and leadership sessions on topics such as infusing culture into healthy lifestyles, academic success and good character/citizenship, using NYOI to effectively tell your story, resource development basics, federal grants management, human resource basics, serving teens with impact, board development basics, and dialogues on challenges.
