The Del Norte County and Tribal Lands Opportunity Youth Initiative

Our children should dream about their futures and those dreams should be framed by family, health, safety, economic security, education and hope. We believe their dreams are our community responsibility.

The Community of Practice is integral to our learning, often supporting and affirming things we may be doing already but are not effectively sharing. It enables us to see patterns in our work that are linked across the nation, to know we are on the right track and we get to see some of the best gems and ideas that spark more creativity.

We value the space to learn and deepen our knowledge and relationships with others doing hard and meaningful social justice work.
