An essential part of the South Central CASC’s Tribal Engagement Strategy is conducting tribal youth programs which are an important step in developing relationships, promoting native scientists in the climate related fields, and building capacity in the next generation of tribal staff.
We work with a variety of sources to attain these goals by providing youth camps, festivals, and after school programs. We also provide educational resources on the topic of climate change for teachers and students alike. The resources provided here are for youth and youth leaders as well as teachers interested in helping tribal communities build resilience through the next generation.
