National Indian Child Welfare Association Youth Board Member Job Description
The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) and the National Congress of American Indians Youth Commission (NCAI-YC) have partnered to create an opportunity for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth to serve on the NICWA board. By engaging AI/AN youth voices in its governance structure, NICWA aims to expose these future leaders to child welfare and related issues, and improve its coordination with formally recognized Native youth organizations. The AI/AN youth perspective is a critical aspect of the NICWA board’s efforts surrounding policy positions and potential courses of action. Youth are introduced to board service and play a key role in helping NICWA’s board of directions in its decision making.
