    Young Native Scholars / InterTribal Youth ( prepares Native American students for a brighter future through hands-on life experiences that combine academics, adventure travel, health and wellness, cultural exploration and economic opportunities. Barona Cultural Center & Museum has hosted Young Native Scholars since 2003. This summer, the group enjoyed a visit with Vice Chairman LaChappa and Councilman Welch, received a tour of the Museum by staff including the Director, Curator, Collections Manager, and Librarian, and held a Model Tribal Council meeting. Students left Barona feeling empowered as cultural stewards and ready to be leaders.
