Mi Vida Su Vida

Education

Mi Vida Su Vida is a training in collaboration with Sisters of Color, which provides culturally responsive prevention, intervention and treatment methods around health education for young people. The IIYC believes that as young people, if we are to lead in our communities, we must ensure we are developing our leadership skills from a strong foundation. This begins with education around mental, physical and spiritual health. 

In Mi Vida Su Vida you will learn about:

  • Dynamic Systems Theory
  • Physics of the Soul
  • The importance of water
  • Conocimiento
  • Historic & intergenerational trauma and healing
  • Sex & sexual identity
  • Suicide prevention
  • Drug use, abuse & dependency
  • Leadership development

7th Generation School Tour

Civic Engagement

The 7th Generation School Tour places council members in elementary, middle- and high-schools in Denver, Chicago, Texas, New Mexico and South Dakota. Council members engage students by sharing stories and facilitating dialogue around life as Indigenous People and our experience with DAPL, in hopes to inspire young people to stand for what they believe in.

Ask the IIYC to visit your school.

Community Meetings

Education, Spiritual Practice & Civic Engagement

Each IIYC chapter hosts monthly community meetings to engage with youth on a local level. The IIYC believes that the youth often know better than anyone else, what's needed in their communities. Community meetings offer youth a chance to connect with other young people in their local area, while providing a platform to advise the IIYC on how best to engage in local community development.
