"The Hopi Leadership Program has given me the confidence to face many challenges in my life; personally, professionally, and spiritually. I have gained valuable knowledge and a better understanding of our history, culture, language and resources here at Hopi, and how every aspect plays a vital role in how we plan to carry out services within our communities. It has opened my eyes to new ideas and opportunities, such as non-profit, and how we can utilize these concepts to achieve our goals that will benefit our people. This Program has made a profound impact on my life, and has given me the desire, passion and tools to make me a more effective leader with in my community."

We make sure our programs empower by creating opportunities for Hopi & Tewa individuals and their communities.
The Hopi Leadership Program is designed to grow strong and culturally-grounded Hopi and Tewa professionals utilizing a model based on the Hopi culture and western education, to build effective leadership skills.
The Hopi Foundation's projects, Hopi Leadership Program and Hopi Opportunity Youth Initiative, helped to inspire the groundwork of the HYLP, to nurture and develop the next generation of leaders from our Hopi & Tewa youth.
