Local Lift




Learn about the challenges faced by the real locals, Indigenous Americans

About the cause: Did you know that only 11% of Native Americans obtain Bachelor’s degrees? Our nonprofit partner, American Indigenous Business Leaders (AIBL), is focused on providing indigenous youth with the resources, support, and work experience necessary to improve this statistic. Native American communities face significant challenges – over 24% of their population lives in poverty and over 7% of their households lack clean drinking water. There’s a lot we need to help and AIBL gives American Indigenous youth the support they need to build initiatives to help solve problems within their community.

About the event: Local Lift supports the real locals – our Native Americans. We support strategies and plans built by these youth interns as they look to make a difference in their local community and the broader Native American community. Whether we’re providing food supplies, clean water access, or educational supplies for schools, each program is specialized to support the most essential causes for The American Indigenous Business Leaders. Their strategies and programs change every 1-2 months and we will constantly adjust our program to ensure we’re delivering the most impact.

Join us for this virtual event as we learn about the challenges faced by the real locals, Indigenous Americans, as you empower youth leaders from across the Native American community through making kits of needed supplies. Time to lift the locals!

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
