ABBOTT SEKAQUAPTEWA

 

Abbott Sekaquaptewa (Hopi), past Chairman of the Futures for Children Board of Directors, became involved with FFC in 1978.  Abbott was extremely passionate about bettering American Indian children’s lives and played an integral part in developing the self-help method utilized by FFC in all of our programs.  Abbott spearheaded the Youth Leadership Program in the mid 1980’s with a weeklong camp dedicated to leadership development in Native students.  Abbott’s contributions to FFC are lasting long after his time, truly leaving a legacy of philanthropy.   Past recipients of the Abbott Sekaquaptewa Leadership Awards include Al Baldwin, Peter Fagan, Bruce Larsen and Dan Namingha.


FUTURES FOR CHILDREN

Futures for Children’s three-pronged approach (Youth Leadership, Friendship/Mentorship and Families in Action) to self-sufficiency in Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo and Mescalero Apache communities in Arizona and New Mexico as well as the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma is effective and efficient for over 44 years.  Our mission is to improve the educational experience to empower American Indian children.  Futures for Children’s founder Dr. Richard P. Saunders’ vision lives on today – “to build communities empowered by self-reliance.”  The national high school graduation rate amongst Native American is 50%; FFC mentored students have a graduation rate of over 95%.

 

87% of all proceeds go

directly to field programs.
