2015 Native Summit

Welcome! This page serves as a resource for participants of the 2015 Native Summit, including Club staff, board members, and/or Tribal Leaders. It has information that was shared during the Summit at the Buffalo Thunder Resort, located in Santa Fe, NM from March 24-26, 2015.

Hosted by the Pueblo of Pojoaque, nearly 240 Boys & Girls Club professionals, Tribal Leaders and Boys & Girls Clubs in Indian Country partners gathered to work together to strengthen and sustain Boys & Girls Clubs for years to come.

The event was filled with informational breakout sessions designed to fit the needs of each and every Native organization and site. It is recognized that even as Clubs have many similarities, they also have many differences. By offering various sessions, leaders and professionals of all backgrounds were able to participate in meaningful learning experiences that were applicable to their daily lives.

Boys & Girls Clubs in Indian Country (BGCIC) have served American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian youth for more than 23 years. Since 1992, BGCA has served as a catalyst to bring together communities, tribal and federal governments and corporate and non-profit organizations.

Today, BGCA continues its pledge to assist communities and expand youth development in Indian Country. The Native Youth Services Unit provides additional support and specifically addresses the needs of Clubs on Native lands. The NSU has been, and continues to be, an integral component of the success and development of Native Clubs.
