Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $348,447)
The Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) serves as a single solicitation for existing tribal government-specific grant programs administered by the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). The CTAS solicitation is designed to assist tribes with addressing crime and public safety issues in a comprehensive manner. Under Purpose Area 9, Tribal Youth Program, OJJDP seeks to support and enhance tribal efforts to prevent and reduce juvenile delinquency and strengthen a fair and beneficial juvenile justice system response for American Indian and Alaska Native youth. The funding in this purpose area is made available to enable tribes to create, expand, or strengthen approaches along the juvenile justice continuum that can range from prevention to intervention and treatment.
The purpose of the Youth Value in Port Graham program is to combat youth involvement in cyber bullying and inappropriate interactions. The goals of this project are to help youth understand the consequences of bullying and how to defend themselves against it; to provide youth with leadership skills; and to provide youth with opportunities to spend more time, interact, and bond with prosocial adult community members. This project will serve teens from age 12 to 17. Youth will participate in activities in the community where teens and adults can recreate together and bond, such as community nights for table games and open gym at the school for basketball and volleyball. Guest speakers will address the youth and the community on topics such as valuing their culture and their home, respecting themselves and others, law and the crime of solicitation of youth, sexual harassment, and cyber bullying.
