NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATION PROGRAM (NAEP)

“ We have to work with each other. Our earth is crying. And it’s crying for help. In the everyday movement of our country, you can make a difference. You can make a difference.”
- Billy Frank Jr.

The mission of the Title VI Native American Education program is to provide academic and cultural programming for Native American students. “Since Time Immemorial” curriculum is used throughout the district.

NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY (NAYLA)

The NAYLA program is geared to help gather Native American youth from across the Western Washington region. It develops leadership, communication, and life skills for Native youth in a safe and nurturing environment. These students, that represent many districts, gather and discuss topics that affect their lives and how to approach solving issues. Along with making new friends and stepping out of their comfort zones, these students learn to become leaders in their schools, among their peers, and in their communities. For more information about NAYLA, visit http://wwnaec.org/nayla/.
