How do I bring Project Venture to my community?

Project Venture provides training and technical assistance to programs around the country and abroad. Learn more by visiting our Training page.

Project Venture works with children beginning in 4th grade and through high school. Our Alumni often return to work as Peer Mentors.

Project Venture serves primarily Indigenous youth but is effective for all youth. Please contact us to learn more.

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.

If there’s no PV in your community, learn more by visiting our Training page.

Project Venture can be easily adapted to various communities. PV has operated in urban areas like Los Angeles, as well as diverse environments, including Hawaii and Alaska. We can help you tailor your program to meet the needs of children in your community with wilderness-based adventures and field trips.  

 Contact us here to learn more about openings.

We're so glad you're interested! Project Venture depends on financial support from our communities to continue our work. The easiest way is to donate. Gifts of any size are appreciated. Project Venture is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.  

That's wonderful. We appreciate your generous support. Please contact us and we'd be happy to assist you.
