Be part of an exciting long-term project working with Native youth in Neah Bay.
PIPELINE PROJECT: NEAH BAY 2017
“Telling Our Stories, Imagining Our Futures”
This collaborative project is built on a longstanding partnership between UW’s Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Elementary School and has been developed to address a community-identified need. The result is an exciting new project that will focus on encouraging Neah Bay students to envision their futures. The goal will be to not only have Native students see themselves pursuing higher education, but learning, as early as fifth grade, of career paths that could ensure their being able to live and thrive in Neah Bay after graduation.
Using oral histories, digital storytelling, and photography, UW students will learn about the rich history and culture of the Makah people while mentoring 5th grade students in the creation of a digital storytelling that celebrates their Native culture and identifies pathways to meaningful careers in their own community.
This is a rewarding three-quarter commitment for fall, winter, and spring, including Spring Break!
Applications are due May 22nd, 2017 at 5:00pm. You can submit your application HERE!
