Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $400,000)
The project's primary goal is to improve the system of juvenile justice on the Wind River Indian Reservation by providing Re-Entry Services and indigenous justice strategies for court-involved tribal youth. The Wind River Tribal Youth Program seeks to provide a continuum of services for reservation youth. An important part of this continuum is the Three Hoops project which provides culturally appropriate wrap-around services to youth designed to: 1) promote a clean and sober life style among re-entry youth on the Wind River Indian Reservation; 2) promote educational attainment among these youth; 3) through provision of family-centered wrap-around supports, reduce recidivism and future out of home placement; and 4) ensure that re-entry youth receive services required.
