The Skokomish Tribal Nation is a federally recognized tribe with a population of 704 tribal members and through this Tribal Youth Program initiative, the Skokomish Youth Prevention Program (SYPP) will seek to provide prevention services to impact risk factors for delinquency to include providing alcohol and drug abuse prevention programs. The SYPP will serve over 122 juveniles, ages 6-18 through after school prevention and summer recreation programming on the Skokomish Indian Reservation in Mason County, Washington. The SYPP is a multi-faceted youth prevention program and will focus on the development of pro-social skills; improving education outcomes; promoting cultural values and self-esteem through tribal activities; and reducing delinquency and substance abuse through community prevention, training, and education. The effectiveness of the SYPP will be evaluated by an independent evaluator.CA/NCF
