National Indian Youth Leadership Development Project is now Project Venture, also the name of our flagship model. Project Venture has been in existence since the very beginning and has been refined, adapted, and implemented in 25 states, 8 Canadian provinces, along with Hungary and Jamaica. More than 9,000 Indigenous youth have participated in our life-changing Project Venture programs.
First, check in with your child’s school or youth program to see if they’re affiliated with Project Venture. There’s no cost to join Project Venture.
