Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $225,000)
The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) is one of nine federally recognized tribes in Oregon. The Tribe will provide prevention services to impact risk factors for delinquency among tribal youth and will provide intervention for court-involved tribal youth. This Tribal Court program will annually serve 30 or more high-risk tribal youth ages 9-18 years. In addition, over 200 tribal youth will be served annually via universal prevention activities. The new tribal delinquency prevention program will be headquartered at the CTUIR Tribal Court. Besides Tribal Court interventions, most prevention program activities will be held within the following areas: Tribal Recreation Department, Nixaywaaii Charter School, Tribal Social Services Department, Yellowhawk Clinic, and at the summer cultural camp in the Mission Mountains. The tribal juvenile delinquency prevention project will provide drug-free activities and school-based interventions, as well as year-round planning, case management, and curriculum development and delivery for court-involved youth.
