The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon plan to implement a 5-year project to provide prevention services that will reduce, control and prevent tribal youth's risk factors for delinquency and criminal involvement. Services will be provided to at least 40 at risk tribal youth ages 10 through 17 (and their families) annually. This interdepartmental project, led by social services, with partners in the education, health, recreation and culture departments as well as housing, police, education, and cultural organizations, will focus on youth activities and provide anti-gang and under-age drinking education. Prevention services will also include: risk factor identification, programs for youth gun violence reduction, truancy prevention, school dropout prevention, after school programs, and parenting education programs. The tribe will report on OJJDP's mandatory Tribal Youth Program performance measures. CA/NCF
