Congratulations to our own Sage Durrani (Gila River- Akimel O'odham), an ALA senior, who was elected to the Future Inspired Native American Leaders Youth Council last week.
The Future Inspired Native American Leaders Youth Council, organized under the Phoenix Indian Center, is the youth representation and voice of the Phoenix Indian Center and the American Indian urban community. The youth council is compromised of 18 high school students representing 14 area high schools and six tribes within Maricopa County.
Once elected, youth council members are sworn into office by a judge and recognized as Youth Leaders.
Youth council members are given the responsibility to oversee various community service projects and attend various local state and national meetings to network and interact with other Native Americans across the state and nation.
