Honor Guard looking to add youth  program

The Wyandotte Nation Honor Guard is exploring the opportunity to create a Junior Warrior Program. Participants can be either male or female, ages 12-17. The program will focus on mentoring of youth by using discipline, respect, tradition and community service. Participants will be asked to participate in a weekend training event and then support the Honor Guard at Pow Wows and other ceremonies. Members will be required to participate in quarterly community service events. Ribbon shirts and other items will be supplied at no cost to the participants.

We are looking for young people who have a strong desire to give back to the Nation and who will be good role models for their fellow youths.

For more information or to volunteer contact Dave Culver at dculver1740@yahoo.com
