American Indian Education Program Staff & Emphasizing Cultural Identity in the College Planning Process

Culture is Strength

American Indian Education Program staff to ensure that culture is highlighted as a strength throughout the CollegeBound Journey.  

The AIEP staff recognize that Native American youth need resources that are culturally relevant and designed for academic success. These resources should also be tailored to support college readiness.

By prioritizing Native American culture in the college planning process, we can pave the way for a more supportive CollegeBound Journey for our Native youth.

The Enrichment Program Search

Enrichment programs offer valuable experiences to students, which is especially true for Native American students. Pre-college programs, for instance, provide a safe environment where students can get a glimpse of college life and picture themselves attending college in the future. Similarly, culture and career camps allow students to learn as a community with cultural mentors.

If you’re looking for Native American-specific pre-college and enrichment experiences, check out our database.  This feature is particularly useful for staff working within an American Indian Education Program, as it allows for easy access to resources that can be shared with Native youth.
