For almost twenty years, Capacity Builders, Inc. has dedicated its resources, determination and passion to working with the Diné (a traditional term for the Navajo) and other Native American communities in the United States. Our mission is to:

  • Build the capacity of the neediest tribal nonprofits and communities through training and support programs so they are better able to improve the lives of Native American youth and families.
  • Improve the health, wellness and quality of life of the Diné by providing direct services that include teen pregnancy prevention, drug and alcohol prevention, academic and service learning programs.
  • Encourage love, appreciation, and understanding for one’s culture by incorporating cultural learning components in our programs.

Six Northern Navajo Chapter's Economic Opportunity Initiative - 6CEO, provides technical assistance on business, economic, and land development to benefit residents and leaders of the Navajo Nation. During the month of August (2016), Capacity Builders Inc., is presenting a free workshop on starting and growing one's business on the Navajo Nation. Lunch and in-depth training on business development is provided. Read more and register here!
