Since its inception, the program has been more successful than we could have ever imagined. Running Strong has given away over $500,000 in grants to fifty amazing Native youth from 37 tribal nations and 24 states.

What was originally designed to be a five-year pilot program has become an essential part of Running Strong. We are SO excited to see it continue year after year, and today is the day we launch the next year of the Dreamstarter® Program: Dreamstarter® 2020!

Dreamstarter® 2020 will focus on dreams revolving around the theme Health & Wellness. To apply, visit:https://indianyouth.org/Dreamstarter."
