Purpose

The Alaska Native Youth Training and Technical Assistance Project will enter into a cooperative agreement with a single agency to provide comprehensive and culturally relevant training and technical assistance to support Alaska Native villages and communities in their efforts to create, expand, and/or sustain programs, services, and supports for youth. The program is designed to build capacity of organizations to offer prevention and intervention services for Alaska native youth to reduce juvenile delinquency, incarceration, substance abuse, suicide, expulsion or dropout from school, and other challenges.

Objectives include:

  • Provide tools and practical techniques for working across disciplines to facilitate information sharing, communication, and coordination of balanced approaches and data-driven strategies to address youth needs and promote an increase in protective factors to help prevent delinquency
  • Develop and provide culturally competent, community-driven, and data-driven technical assistance to assist communities in preventing and addressing issues related to delinquency
  • Facilitate peer-to-peer consultation and networking between villages and communities to promote problem solving and innovation through the exchange of information and ideas
