Introducing our New Youth Empowerment Team!

Purpose: Build hope, strength, and respect in our Native youth and provide cultural support. We will help our young men learn how to effectively solve everyday problems with peers and their family.


How: By providing positive role models and cultural lessons to help foster resiliency and life skills. By teaching boys the skills they need to safely provide food for their families, provide money or wood for their fires, and learn positive, cultural, male-driven values.


When:

The positive support group will meet once per week with the counselor (Katie Abrahamson) and the JOM advisor. A field-trip experience will be coordinated once per month to include several community leaders and volunteers.


Fourteen East students were matched up with seven mentors on November 14th for Indian Tacos. At this time the boys got to meet their mentors and they expressed their interests. The boys and the mentors have started meeting every Tuesday after school to play basketball. There will be a Saturday event planned before winter break.

Many thanks to Katie Abrahamson for bringing this opportunity to our youth!
