About Youth Services

Chickasaw Nation Citizen Benefits

The Chickasaw Nation offers a wide variety of benefits for its youngest citizens to set them up on the road to success. Mixing a positive learning environment with play, the Nation’s camp and recreation program focuses on building character, self respect and appreciation and understanding of Chickasaw heritage. There is also the Youth Leadership Program, called Chikasha Apikchi Ikbi, where teen participants commit to leadership training and getting involved with community service projects. Students can also attend Chickasaw Youth Club, an after school and summer program that offers a safe place for students to complete their homework while waiting for parents to pick them up.
