The Intertribal Friendship House is the iconic hub for East Bay Native American peoples, serving as a nucleus for a broad suite of social services to the intertribal community. Its arts and cultural programming encompasses a broad array of practices, from instruction in drum and regalia making to training in traditional song and dance, highlighting the diversity of tribes that define the urban Native experience. Renewed support would enable the organization to focus on planning strategies to increase participation in traditional, cultural, and ceremonial programming; build more public awareness for its work and services; and improve its financial sustainability.

for Community Schools Learning Exchange
Community Initiatives is the fiscal sponsor of The Community Schools Learning Exchange (CSLX), which builds the capacity of policymakers, school leaders, educators, families, and ultimately students as they endeavor to implement and refine whole-child community schools. CSLX envisions community schools that are organized to create and sustain the optimal conditions for teaching and learning; are inclusive, equitable, and student- and family-centered; and are interconnected with the organizations and people within the communities they serve. CSLX’s approach to bringing about community schools that reflect these qualities prioritizes strategies that foster long-term commitment to systemic change. (Substrategy: Educator Capacity)
