Paid Apprenticeship Opportunity
The AIHFS I-LEAD team has summer apprenticeship opportunities available to native young adults ages 14-24. These apprenticeships seek to provide opportunities for professional development, cultural connection, the exploration of identity, the finding of purpose, and developing clarity around one’s path in life. They will also help build leadership skills and a sense of comradery among other program participants through weekly team meetings. This program is intended to provide skills so that our people become more empowered to follow their paths while using their unique passions and gifts. .

The peer mentors will assist with workshops, conduct one-on-one visits with other youth, and serve as an integral part of the implementation team. They will work directly with staff to assist with activities such as outreach/awareness, community events, partnership building, trainings, and data entry.
