CITC’s Youth Empowerment Services Department (YES) is implementing a new Tribal PREP program called “Strengthening Our Youth.” The program will be administered for five years from 2016 to 2021 and will be working with Alaska Native/American Indian youth on subjects that focus on preparing youth for adulthood, including:
- Healthy relationships
- Financial literacy
- Healthy life skills
- Safe sex, abstinence, and contraceptive education
- Adolescent development
- STD/STI and HIV/AIDS prevention
- Parent-child communication
- Pregnancy and parenting
- Career/education services.
The goal of this program is to assist youth to empower their own lives, increase their knowledge of important health topics, enhance their understanding of present day decision-making on future life goals and educate them on necessary relationship, communication, and life skills to successfully navigate adulthood.
YES hopes to collect feedback from the community and to gauge interest from the public in this new program.
Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey, which will yelp YES better target the “Strengthening Our Youth” program, tailor topics to participants’ interest, and identify barriers that might prevent people from participating. Thank you!
