Introducing Tribal PREP to Anchorage youth, parents, elders, community, and CITC employees.
Tribal PREP is a federally funded grant through Family & Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) with the Administration for Children & Families (ACF) in the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS).
The Youth Empowerment Services Department is implementing the new program Tribal PREP that will be working with Alaska Native/American Indian youth on subjects that focus on preparing youth for adulthood. These subjects include but not limited to:
*Healthy Life Skills
*Safe sex, abstinence, and contraceptive education
*STD/STI and HIV/AIDS prevention
*Pregnancy and parenting
The goal of the 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.
