Neighbors in Action: Indigenous Youth Empowerment Program

Jun 10, 2015

Wednesday on Current State means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make Greater Lansing a better place. Today, we learn about the Indigenous Youth Empowerment Program (IYEP), an after school and summer program that is helping Native American and Indigenous youth in the Lansing area reclaim their cultural heritage.

Current State talks with Jaclynn Lloyd, the Family, Child, and Infant Advocate for Native Americans in the Ingham County Health Department, and Ramona Henry, coordinator for the Native American Program in the Lansing School District.

Current State is looking for more nominations for our “Neighbors In Action” feature.  Please help us out and email us your suggestions to currentstate@wkar.org. Put ‘Neighbors in Action’ in the subject line. Or tweet us: @KARCurrentState, and tell us a little about why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
