Giving Back

Black Elk said, "Everything the power of the world does is done in a circle." Your education is part of that circle. As your vision of the future unfolds, we hope you will share what you have learned with others.

Perhaps you can become a mentor to young people struggling to get an education, just as others have been mentors to you. Perhaps you can work in a career that provides a critical service to your fellow tribal members. Or, perhaps you can start a business that brings employment to your reservation or pueblo. Regardless of whatever form it takes, we hope you'll remember to give back to tribe.

All of us at the American Indian College Fund and the National Endowment for Financial Education offer you our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for a bright and fulfilling future.
