The Navajo Nation
Nestled in Southeastern Utah, among national monuments and parks is part of the Navajo Nation. Living in a secluded region of the country largely untouched by development the Navajo people are passionate, strong and full of life. But economic growth is a constant challenge. In a collaboration led by the San Juan Foundation, I3 is working with Navajo students to retell the Native American story from their perspectives, create new educational models, forge local career pathways, and implement a long-term, sustainable solution for prosperity.
A New Realm of Possibility
For young people in San Juan County, being able to live, work, and raise their families in the community is the most important part of daily life. The San Juan Foundation, and Indigo Impact Initiative have joined together to create local economic opportunities and inspire students to solve local problems through Indigo's unique entrepreneurship education program.
I3 began working with Whitehorse High School in 2016.
Each year since, WHS has drastically improved and is no longer among the lowest-performing schools in the state.
