Running Strong for American Indian Youth® is one of the most effective and respected American Indian nonprofits in the nation. With the help of our donors and committed supporters, we create lasting change in the lives of American Indian people, especially American Indian youth.
Not only do we address the physical needs of the American Indian people we serve, we also foster a sense of hope among people who want to make a better life for their families and create positive change in their communities. We are committed to building the capacity of local Native American communities so that they are well equipped to respond to the challenges that they face. Together, we address the important needs of food, shelter, youth initiatives, and culture and language preservation. By supporting Native American-led programs, we remind youth that they are capable of creating their own future and to take pride in their identity.
