Forty-Five Students Convene for Youth Leadership Summit

Crow Canyon started off the program season this year with an extraordinary group of students. Futures for Children brought 45 children to Crow Canyon for their 2012 Elementary School Youth Leadership Summit.

Futures for Children is a New Mexico–based organization that improves the quality of the educational experience to empower American Indian students through leadership development and mentoring. The organization’s Youth Leadership Program teaches American Indian students goal setting, problem solving, critical thinking, and leadership skills.

Accompanied by 18 adult volunteers and Futures for Children staff, the Summit was held March 9–11 at Crow Canyon with support from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. Students engaged in team development activities and learned about the ancestral Pueblo Indians of the Mesa Verde region through workshops and Crow Canyon programs. The summit included students from the fourth through sixth grades from the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and Mescalero Apache communities.
