Seed2Lead Retreat

Friday May 3rd 5pm-8pm, Saturday May 4th 8am -5pm, and Sunday 8am-12 pm May 5th.

Who is Seed to Lead for?

We are looking for individuals from tribal communities in New Mexico from the ages of 18-24 that would be considered young leaders. S2L is looking for people who have engaged their community regardless of whether it’s through art, music, athletics, government, language or traditional cultural pursuits. Because our tribal communities are so diverse we want to have a broad cross-section of youth join us to help envision what prosperity can look like in Indian Country.

What do the Seed to Lead retreats look like?
Seed to Lead will have two separate retreats focused on different aspects of contemporary Native American life. The S2L retreats themselves will be conducted through the openspace meeting method. Openspace is a meeting process where the participants create their own agenda and identify their own outcomes. Through this process the participants are given complete freedom to innovate, build new relationships and create effective solutions to the issue at hand. The goal of these openspace meetings is for these self-organized groups to be able to take on any challenge regardless of its complexity.
