Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $219,918)

The Hannahville Indian Community will provide preventative services to 158 youth (ages 8 ' 17) living on, or near, the Hannahville Potawatomi Reservation in Michigan. The goal of the program is to reduce juvenile delinquency by increasing youth's self-confidence, personal empowerment, and personal achievement. The program's strategy includes operating a recreation program, Project QUEST, which immerses youth in challenging outdoor recreational activities. QUEST will strategically involve youth in planned activities during times in which they would otherwise be most susceptible to acts of delinquency. These high-risk times are after school, weekends and school vacations. Planned activities consist of backpacking, canoeing, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, snowshoeing. Performance measures will include those set forth in OJJDP's FY05 TYP solicitation. CA/NCF
