As a member of our Youth Leadership Council, Miah’s voice has called our community to invest in Okanogan youth. Her story of resilience and deep connection shows that our youth are strong and capable; they are the bright future of the Okanogan valley, and they deserve resources that make a difference. Check out Miah’s story, she is a leader on the rise...
Questions to deepen the discussion:
- Miah tells us that her grandmother, family, and community are critical parts of her identity and her strength. What resources can we provide to support Okanogan County youth who may not have a safe place to live or a family support network?
- The voices of youth like Miah deserve to be front and center as we develop resources to support our future generations. We know that youth are often excluded from decision making processes on issues that directly affect them. How do we get youth to the table and make sure they are recognized as the experts in the challenges youth face?
