Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $179,196)

The Nanwalek IRA Council (Council) will implement a project titled, New Direction, in the Native Village of Nanwalek (a.k.a. English Bay). The purpose is to provide prevention activities for the youth of Nanwalek who have been identified as at-risk for delinquent behavior. This project will include alcohol and drug abuse prevention programs and services and drug and/or alcohol education. The age groups of youth that will be targeted are 12-17 years of age and of Sugpiaq/Aluutiq descent. The approximate number of youth involved will be 35 in the first year and 19 more in the subsequent two years of the grant. The Council will operate a year round after school prevention program. The program will provide safe, educational, and fun activities for the youth, which will prevent the youth from having both time and energy for delinquent behavior. The program will produce material that will be shared and distributed. A signed tribal resolution that states that the Nanwalek IRA Council will fully support this project has been submitted with this application. CA/NCF
