The Tribal Youth Program implemented by the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe of Lake Superior Chippewa will support prevention programs to reduce the risk factors that contribute to delinquency along with providing drug and alcohol prevention through the services of The Boys and Girl Clubs of Lac Courte Oreilles. The program will serve 20 boys per year for the program 'Passport to Manhood' for a total of 60 boys over the three year period. This is a year long program focusing on character and accountability. We will serve 20 girls and 20 boys per year in 'The Virtues Project' for a total of 40 youth per year. This year long program focuses on the 52 virtues of living a healthy lifestyle. Both programs are intense, mentor based, and increase protective factors in youth. Both the 'Passport to Manhood' and 'The Virtues Project' will serve children ages 11-14. The location for both of the programs will be at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lac Courte Oreilles. The program will also continue its SMART MOVES curriculum (a drug and alcohol abuse prevention program) at the local schools and at all three club sites. The program will serve another 60 youth per year ages 10-18 through the SMART MOVES program.CA/NCF
