Jacquelyn's dream is to create a peer mentoring program to strengthen health and wellness, cultural identity, and other positive influences for Native youth in her community, all while connecting the youth to the environment around them.

Her program will connect youth with elders for guidance and cultural knowledge, and with Native scientists to help clean up local areas, improve their health, and learn work skills. The mentoring program will also give youth a voice and teach them to be leaders, as they help direct the program.
