Native American Health Sciences will be hosting the Na’ha’shnee STEAM Health Institute this June 28–July 30, 2021. This program will be a distance learning experience for high school participants. The program is designed for students interested in the health sciences and/or Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM Health) fields and have completed grades 9-12 at the end of this school year. This Institute will focus on health sciences and STEAM Health careers available, as well as research and learning opportunities within these fields. We will be providing hands-on learning experiences 4-hours each weekday through a Chromebook. We will send new participants a Chromebook, along with experiment kits, materials, and other supplies such as culturally based art projects to do in your home. You will learn from faculty and professionals across several health occupations, and receive cultural instruction from tribal elders. All expenses are paid for and students who participate for the full five weeks will be able to keep their Chromebook and receive a $200 stipend!

High School Expeditions (9-12 graders): 2 or 4-week service projects improving wild places on crews of other Montana youth. Various project partners make this a great networking and job skills training, in addition to the volunteer hours accrued for college applications. It is also just a fun summer experience, plus the youth earn up to $270 for their work! Last year crews did some trailwork in the Bitterroot but projects can take them across the state and into Idaho. We also have programs specifically for Native youth based in our Kalispel office where youth earn minimum wage. Check out more information.
Two, one-month long sessions will be offered to youth between the ages of 15 and 18. Sixty youth will be selected from across the country to participate in this summer program. Enrollees will work 40 hours a week and receive the federal minimum wage ($7.25/hr) with deductions for room, board, and laundry facilities (~$10/day).
The program is challenging, educational, and fun, and it offers enrollees opportunities to expand their horizons while building skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. No previous wilderness experience is required, but a willingness and ability to work in a physcially active outdoor program, get along well with others, and maintain a positive attitude are essential for success.
The summer 2020 YCC Program will consist of two, one-month long sessions:
• Session #1: June 7 - July 7
• Session #2: July 12 - August 12
To apply for the 2020 summer program, interested students should complete the application at https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/management/yccjobs.htm.
DEADLINE: Applications must be received no later than March 1, 2020.
