The Burns Paiute Tribe is one of nine federally recognized tribes in Oregon and is located in an isolated rural area. The Tribe will provide prevention services to impact risk factors for delinquency and provide alcohol and drug abuse prevention programs for tribal youth. The Tribe's project will annually target 20 high risk youth ages 10 to 17 years for indicated prevention activities and 50 youth ages 0 to 17 years for universal community-wide prevention activities. The alcohol and drug abuse prevention programs will be headquartered at the Wadatika Tribal Health Center. Most activities will be held at the Tribal Community Center, pow wow grounds, and summer cultural camp in the mountains. The tribal prevention project will include after-school drug-free activities and school-based interventions, as well as year-round planning, case management, and development and delivery of curriculum for court-involved youth.
