Neah Bay “Telling Our Stories” Mentorship Program!

Our friends in Riverway Education Partnerships are offering an amazing opportunity to spend a year mentoring Native youth in Neah Bay. Build your skills and experiences and make an impact in the life of a 5th grader – what a great combination!

An exciting long-term project working with Native youth in Neah Bay!

Telling Our Stories, Imagining Our Futures is a year-long mentorship program. Using oral histories, digital storytelling and photography, UW students will learn about the rich history and culture of the Makah Indian Nation while mentoring fifth grade students in the creation of a digital storytelling that celebrates their culture and identifies pathways to meaningful careers in their own community.

The fifth graders learn about pathways to higher education, and explore career paths where they can live, lead, and thrive in Neah Bay after graduation.
