CITC seeks participants to take survey on community readiness

CITC is looking for individuals willing to take a survey that will let us know how ready our community is to support a new initiative that will address the behavioral health needs of Alaska Native and American Indian youth.

Cook Inlet Tribal Council, Inc. received funding from the federal government to expand and better coordinate prevention and treatment resources to address this challenge. The effort will involved promoting successful transitions to adulthood through a culturally specific, youth guided wrap-around continuum of outreach, engagement, awareness, prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies. We also are focusing on social needs such as homelessness, educational services, family services, cultural activities, and youth leadership opportunities.

But we need your guidance. As we launch this effort, we are uncertain about the community’s readiness to address the challenges that such an initiative faces.

And so we are asking you and others in the community to help us by responding to a survey. Your answers will provide us with valuable information that can shape our efforts to meet local needs.

This survey will take about 45 minutes to complete. As thanks for participating, CITC will provide a $50 gift card for your time and effort.

To take the survey or for more information, please contact Kortnee Carmack, Youth Services Manager, Cook Inlet Tribal Council, 3600 San Jeronimo Drive, Phone: (907) 793-3237. Email: kcarmack@citci.org.
