NAYA's Early College Academy Luncheon will be on Wednesday, April 27th, 11:30am-1pm. Last year's student speaker, Eleno Llanos, emphasized why it's important to #teachculure in the classroom. 

Culturally Empowered


NAYA Early College Academy (ECA) students and staff invite you to our annual luncheon happening Wednesday, April 27th, 11:30am-1pm. You won't want to miss hearing about the life changing work of our culturally specific high school at this year's ECA Luncheon. The ECA supports the next generation of leaders with wraparound services that create lifelong skills and paths for personal success.

Eleno Llanos,Oglala Lakota, was our first student to attend the ECA all four years. He spoke to our guests about the importance of teaching culture. "NAYA has always provided fun ways for me to learn and develop the skills to become the Native man I want to be." By graduation, Eleno had received a scholarship from the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette, and the leaders and achievers scholarship from the Comcast Foundation

Each year community partners and friends come together to support the excellent educational work the ECA is doing. Our culturally relevant curriculum and holistic support system improves graduation and attendance rates while decreasing drop-out rates and disciplinary incidents. 

Join us for the 7th annual ECA Luncheon on Wednesday, April 27th, 11:30 - 1pm at NAYA. Tickets and sponsorships are available online or contact JR Lilly, Development Coordinator, for questions at 503.288.8177, ext 277, jrlilly@nayapdx.org. We look forward to seeing you!
