Hello everybody, we hope you are all having an awesome start of the summer. For those who don't know yet our youth center is the first Urban Native Team in the I.T.S. (Inter-Tribal Sports) league. This is a very special honor because now our very own youth members will be representing the urban native tribes in many different sports. These sports include footbal, basketball, baseball, and our current sport softball! As a part of I.T.S now, our current soft ball team were able to walk on the field of the Petco Park Stadium before a Padres game on May 18. You can see us here on the I.T.S newsletter,

 The Urban Native Team can be seen in the yellow jerseys

As we all know graduations this year have ended, but the youth center would like to take a minute to recognize a special graduation that has happened for the native community. One of our very own miss Sheilah Dasher has graduated from San Marcos Sate University. Here she is with her fellow American Indian Graduates celebrating their great accomplishment.

And a picture with family and friends is always required on special occasions like this.
If you would like to learn more of the native american graduates here is a recent article written about them.
