The Native Services Unit Supports BGCIC at NCAI Convention

The Native Services Unit (NSU) team members have been hard at work during the 71st Annual NCAI (National Congress of American Indians) Convention & Marketplace this week. This is an important event for the NSU team because it provides time for them to connect with tribal leaders from across the country, understanding how we can work together to better serve Native youth. NCAI has been a longtime friend of BGCIC, implementing programs like T.R.A.I.L. and the National Native American Mentoring Program. Attending this annual event gives NSU and NCAI the opportunity to expand and deepen this partnership.

NCAI President Brian Cladoosby even took some time to stop by the BGCIC booth and talk to our team. The NSU looks forward to continuing their efforts alongside NCAI to bring Native communities together to succeed!
