Local Lift

Learn about the challenges faced by the real locals, Indigenous Americans, as you empower youth leaders from across the Native American community. Time to lift the locals!

What is Local Lift?

About the cause: Did you know that only 11% of Native Americans obtain Bachelor’s degrees? Our nonprofit partner, American Indigenous Business Leaders (AIBL), is focused on providing indigenous youth with the resources, support and work experience necessary to improve this statistic. Native American communities face significant challenges – over 24% of their population lives in poverty and over 7% of their households lack clean drinking water. There’s a lot we need to help and AIBL gives American Indigenous youth the support they need to build initiatives to help solve problems within their community.

What we’ll do: Local Lift supports the real locals – our Native Americans. We support strategies and plans built by these youth interns as they look to make a difference in their local community and the broader Native American community. Whether we’re providing food supplies, clean water access or educational supplies for schools, each program is specialized to support the most essential causes for The American Indigenous Business Leaders. Their strategies and programs change every 1-2 month and we will constantly adjust our program to ensure we’re delivering the most impact.
