It is our goal as the Kaw Nation Tribal Youth Program to promote wellness, awareness, and strength amongst our native youth through cultural education.
Tools For Success
Kaw Nation wishes to encourage the success of our Tribal and Native American Youth, ages 12 through 17, by providing tribally enhanced activities, counseling, and a gateway to continuing education and career planning through grant funding. The program works to reduce the percentage of teen pregnancy, high school dropout, substance abuse, and suicide rate. We wish to invest in our youth to provide a better nation for their future.
Tribal Youth Program
Our Tribal Youth Program offers a number of services designed to enable the highest rate of success possible.
Counseling for at-risk youth to encourage youth to stay in school, graduate on time, prevent teen pregnancy, and stay out of the court system
Life Skills Education
Youth based educational and cultural activities that promote life skills management, independence, education, and positive decision making
Counseling for rendered youth that have experienced teen pregnancy and drop-out to gain positive re-entry and career planning including the completion of high school.
Social Skills Education
Youth based activities that teach culturally appropriate skills needed to stay in school; resist substance abuse; prevent teen pregnancy; prevent sexual abuse; foster positive relations with peers and adults; learn self-advocacy; and build pro-social skills
Mentoring & Mentee Services
Kaw Nation Tribal Youth Program is always looking for mentors who are at least 18 years of age who can commit to spending time with the youth.
