Native Youth Climate Adaptation Leadership Congress (NYCALC)

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Branch of Tribal Climate Resilience partners with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in collaboration with multiple federal, Tribal, and non-governmental organizations to offer an experiential, youth-driven conservation leadership training for native high school and college-aged youth known as NYCALC.

NYCALC's mission is to develop future conservation leaders with the skills, knowledge, and tools to address environmental change and conservation challenges to better serve their schools and home communities.
