SHI to sponsor Latseen Leadership Academy

Applications are now available for Sealaska Heritage Institute's annual Latseen Leadership Academy.

Yées Sháade Nákx'I Yán (New Young Leaders) is designed to provide engaging culturally-based education and activities for high school students in support of their future academic and personal success with a focus on rigor, relevance, and relationships. Its goal is to teach students the art of leadership through the development of self-knowledge, physical and spiritual strength. In a supportive learning environment, students will participate in cultural, artistic, athletic and academic activities.

This year's academy will be held July 6-14 in Juneau. Application deadline is May 3. Applications may be downloaded at www.sealaskaheritage.org. The project is funded by a grant from the Administration for Native Americans, Social and Economic Development Strategies (ANA-SEDS) program.

Sealaska Heritage Institute is a private, nonprofit founded in 1980 to promote cultural diversity and cross-cultural understanding. The institute is governed by a Board of Trustees and guided by a Council of Traditional Scholars. Its mission is to perpetuate and enhance Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian cultures of Southeast Alaska.
