Keith Martinez grew up on Pine Ridge Reservation, and is the Chair of our Youth Advisory Board. Keith is a sophomore at Villanova University and was chosen as Youth Service America’s National Child Awareness Month Youth Ambassador for the state of South Dakota.

You can visit Keith’s donation page hosted by Festival of Children Foundation and you can contribute to his fundraising effort, or you can visit Lakota Children’s Enrichment’s Donation Page, and you can include a note indicating that Keith should be credited with the donation.

Keith wants to raise money to fund a Reservation-wide spelling bee, teaming teachers with students! 100% of money raised through this effort will be used for youth projects. He has set a fundraising goal of $1,000 fo help implement this and other projects. Keith recently was interviewed by Villanova University and was featured on its home page!
