Native American Community Academy

Albuquerque, NM

NACASchool LogoFounded in 2006, the Native American Community Academy works to engage students, educators, families, and community in creating a school that will prepare our students to grow from adolescence to adulthood and begin strengthening communities by developing strong leaders who are academically prepared, secure in their identity and healthy. The Hiyupo project currently serves Native American boys and young men in a school setting through mentoring and weekly peer groups focused on building academic, leadership, & service skills, building a sense of community, and connecting them with their cultural identities.

Under the Empowerment Projects initiative, Native American Community Academy will strengthen their culturally-based healing practices and storytelling programs.

Grant award: $450,000
