Gen7: Native Youth Culture, Art and STEM Education is a Youth Development program that facilitates the passing of cultural knowledge and advances twenty-first century skills, STEM education, environmental sustainability and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK).

One of the most important strategies to advance sustainable Indigenous cultures is to provide critical tools of empowerment to Native youth. Years of experience working in Native communities tell us that a successful Native young person is one who is carries a strong identitysteeped in tribal history, values and current culture, languageas well as critical twenty-first century skills. These skills consist primarily of leadership, social skills, critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, healthy communication, collaboration or teamwork, and literacy in STEM, media, the environment, wellness and global issues.
