Native Visionary Crew (NVC) is a mentorship and fellowship program for four young Lumbee ladies. NVC assists them in developing skills and perspectives that result in an increased knowledge and sense of pride in their cultural identities. Through community arts programming, they become self-empowered to affect positive change in their own lives and in the world.
NVC is the current incarnation of the former Native American After School Art Program (NAASAP), founded in 2007 by Ashley Minner and participating youth. NVC is the natural evolution of this successful youth-run, youth-led community arts organization.
Native Visionary Crew is a proud program of Fusion Partnerships.
