Fund 12 Native American GED Students for 1 Month

GEDGraduation rates among Native Americans are the lowest in the country, with a dropout rate of up to 51%. According to the Tohono O’odham Community College Annual Report, around 40% of Arizona’s Tohono O’odham Nation has an average per capita income of $7,000. The estimated unemployment rate for the tribe is 42%.

The District of Gu’Vo is working hard to combat this pressing issue by empowering Tohono O’odham children to earn their GEDs — a crucial asset if they are ever find gainful employment and break the cycle of poverty.

With help from the Native American Advancement Foundation (NAAF), they’ve initiated a youth program in which students receive the tutoring and guidance necessary to earn a GED, along with access to laptops and other educational resources that they don’t have at home.They even receive transportation to and from the learning center.

The Gu’Vo Youth Program is a crucial opportunity to break social, economic and educational barriers and provide the people of Gu’Vo District with the tools to progress in school and the community.

You can change these eager children’s lives! Each click helps support their quest for a GED.


SusanW cropReport from the Field

Susan Laubner Warmck is President of the Native American Advancement Foundation, and deeply committed to improving the educational opportunities for Tohono O’odham youth.

Having grown up in the village, Susan knew what needed to be done to make lasting change:

“…[The] village did not need just another program, but rather one that was research-based and that the community members actively participated in and took ownership/responsibility for.

“[The GED] program has been highly effective within the four villages we serve because the graduates have been able to obtain jobs immediately upon completion.”
