The NCIA/MATC Sovereign Native Youth STEM Leadership Academy is a six-day summer program held on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus. The mission is two-fold: (1) to provide an extended learning opportunity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects, and (2) explore a wide-range of education and career options after high school. The academy offers a broad range of hands-on activities that build leadership skills and interest in STEM subjects and transportation-related careers while engaging with Native American history and culture. The curriculum is developed and implemented by Native American faculty, students, and leaders from across the country. Attendees have the unique opportunity to build a professional network with Native American guest speakers and panelists, who provide mentorship by sharing their education and career success.
