The Native American Fish and Wildlife Society (NAFWS) is now accepting applications for its 2024 Summer Youth Practicum. The NAFWS Summer Youth Practicum is a week-long program which gives participants an opportunity to gain hands-on and in-lecture experience in the interdisciplinary components of natural resource management and Indigenous Knowledge.

The 2024 NAFWS National Summer Youth Practicum will take place from July 21-28, 2024 in Northern Colorado, including the Colorado State Mountain Campus, Fort Collins, Estes Park, and Denver. The practicum is free to participants, and NAFWS will pay for student’s travel, food, and lodging.

Applications are open to Native American students incoming to the 10th to 12th grade who are interested in natural resource management.

To apply, students must complete the application packet; prepare a creative submission (an essay, video, or piece of artwork); and submit a letter of recommendations by April 26, 2024.
