Helpful Links:  
Building on its First Kids 1st initiative and its work advancing the Generous Indigenous (Gen-I) initiative, theNational Congress of American Indians has joined forces with the Native Financial Education Coalition to launch NAT$VE in the BANK because they understand that Native youth developing relationships with financial institutions by opening a bank account is a proven difference-maker in empowering their ability to make smart financial decisions over the course of their lives.
 
What Youth Can Do
 
Native youth ages 12 to 25 can ANSWER the CALL by completing four easy steps and LEAD the WAY by getting others to participate! Go to www.nfec.us
