Indigenous Youth Mentoring Program Launched

CEED and the 7th Generation National Tribal Mentoring Program joined forces to sponsor the Peace Carriers for Mother Earth Program for Indigenous youth. Partially funded by Hennepin County Green Partners, it began with a week long training for the youth on energy and environmental justice. They each earned a certificate for participating in the program with stipends. Climate Justice organizer Sammie Ardito Rivera guided the five young people through a variety of workshops and together they created interactive presentations for community education on climate and energy justice. These youth will be doing presentations throughout the community in 2015. For more information contact Sammie Ardito Rivera at
