Other Youth Education Programs


hihi-lakhaset Activity Boxes

Our program offers Native student’s fun activity boxes each month! Each month follows a theme and includes enriching activities and projects to enjoy from home! Information and links will be provided for students to join staff on a zoom each month to connect up and go over the activity for that month. The program is for native students currently in grades K-12 (Local service area: Tribal Member, Descendant or from another Federally recognized tribe and out of the service area, Tribal Members only.) 

School Year Native Clubs (Located at Willamina School, Sheridan Schools and Online)

Monthly meetings are for Middle School and High School students. This is an inclusive club, so all are welcome to join! At each Native Club meeting, students will take part in an educational and or cultural activity. We now offer a monthly virtual Native club as well, where students in and outside the area can connect and learn about their culture in an educational and fun environment! Students who sign up will receive key information on upcoming events, and much more. 

Annual Spring Break Camp

Every year, Grand Ronde and surrounding area 6-12 native youth attend the fun-filled, annual Spring Break Program. The event includes workshops that are educational, cultural and personal enrichment based. This camp is a ton of fun with games, bonding, learning and new friends! Promotional material and sign ups begin in February! There are limited openings available for this very popular camp! 


Student Youth Employment Program

The SYE program is for tribal member students ages 14-18, currently enrolled in eighth grade through twelfth grade. These are paid positions that are located on campus in CTGR departments and other local locations, so students can experience and work in a specific field. The program operates June through mid-August and students are eligible to work a total of 160 to 180 hours and can possibly receive a .5 work-study elective credit for school. Students will also attend eight professional development training classes with subjects ranging from finances, how to get a job, how to keep a job, culture and their next steps after high school education. Online applications are available in March and the interview and onboarding process takes place in May.
