Everyone wants their young people to have hope for their future. To see such optimism within them creates an excitement that is hard to explain. It moves communities and inspires people to create, to participate in life, to get involved and to be part of something larger than themselves.
At NAHS we want the young people of our Tribal communities to see how animals can be part of their future. There are a wide range of exciting and rewarding career options, including:
4-Year College & Professional Degrees
2-Year College, Technical College, and Certificate Programs
We are working on developing programs to connect young people of Tribal communities to opportunities that will develop their skills and knowledge for careers in these fields. More details with be available in the coming months!
Animal Care Externships
We are working to provide opportunities for native youth to develop and pursue their interests (whether in veterinary medicine or in related fields), and to promote experiences that will empower tribes to develop sustainable community-driven animal care programs.
