INSPIRE Native Teens




The INSPIRE Native Teens Initiative, spearheaded by the Native American Political Leadership Program (NAPLP), is a multimedia campaign aimed at motivating indigenous high school students to finish their education and become more politically involved. With the leadership of NAPLP alumni, indigenous professionals, and advocates, we strive to promote careers and education opportunities in public service and political sectors. Join our social media campaign by sharing a story!


We encourage instructors to begin a classroom discussion about career planning or political engagement by using one of the INSPIRE interviews. We urge Native teens to email, tweet or Facebook us with their questions about planning the future.  Read more
