Summer Montileaux and Bobby Pourier, Founding members of Lakota Children’s Youth Advisory Board, a group of youth leaders committed to service on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, were named to the newly-created 2015 Class of Youth Ambassadors by the Center for Native American Youth, at the Aspen Institute.
CNAY announced that it will work with the Youth Ambassadors “to support a broad network of young Native American leaders” who are “creating positive change in communities across the country.” Among other things, Youth Ambassadors participate in Generation Indigenous, a National Native Youth network launched by President Obama in December of 2014.
Bobby is Vice Chair of LCE’s Youth Board, where he has created and led programs promoting the value of education and Lakota culture. Summer is a Vice Chair of the Youth Board, where she has created and led programs addressing Health and Hunger.
Both are Co-Founding members of Lakota Children’s Enrichment’s Youth Advisory Board… and they both seriously rock… seriously.
