Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $225,000)

The Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe is proposing a Three Year Youth At-Risk Mentoring/Intervention Phase III Project to improve self esteem, educational performance, and decisionmaking skills for Indian youth ages 8-17 at risk for educational failure and social/personal problems within the local schools. The goal of the project is to identify youth who are at-risk for academic failure, at risk for substance abuse, and implement a case management model that provides for appropriate interventions at the school and family level supported by professional tutoring, counseling, and mentoring services. The participation of parents and students during the planning stage will insure that program strategies are relevant to the community, address what is perceived as the underlying educational and social needs for at risk youth, and provide for continuous community feedback and student participation.CA/NCF
