On August 26, NB3 Foundation hosted our last meeting with the Native Youth on the Move Community Team.
Over the last two years, we had the pleasure of working with nine organizations, from the Albuquerque area and surrounding Pueblo communities, to create more opportunities for Native youth to participate in play, physical activity and sports.


The numbers tell the story. This graphic breaks down the quantitative data which highlights all the work and impact that took place over the last two years.

Pre-COVID, the NYM Community Team attended monthly in-person gatherings where they learned and shared with community partners from across New Mexico. In these gatherings, teams shared their programming, collaborated on various events, and were provided helpful tools, such as Zines, Photo Voice, and Graphic Note Taking, to help them along their journey.

By utilizing a collective impact approach, we were able to gather support from local organizations, businesses, sports teams, and community champions.  Each partner played an important role throughout the Native Youth on the Move journey, and we are grateful for their support!


This graphic showcases the tools that the NYM cohort learned and utilized through-out their journey together.


Lastly, we would like to thank the NYM Community Team for their time and commitment to Native children’s health! It was a pleasure watching your programs grow and prosper, but most importantly—it was so nice to build meaningful relationships with you all.

Stay tuned as we share the stories of impact our community partners had on the youth in the programming and communities.
