Welcome to the OJJDP Tribal Youth Program Website
This website is a resource for those tribal recipients of OJJDP’s Tribal Youth Program (TYP) and Tribal Juvenile Accountability Discretionary (T-JADG) grants and all Federally recognized tribes seeking to prevent and control delinquency and improve tribal juvenile justice systems.
This website is funded through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), and maintained by the Tribal Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center at Education Development Center, Inc. Here tribes can find the latest research on culturally appropriate prevention and intervention strategies for tribal youth, recent news from Indian Country, and links to events and funding opportunities specifically for tribes.
Grantees and Federally recognized tribes can also request web-based resources, individualized technical assistance, or on-site training or technical assistance.
This website is a work in progress and we would like it to be a collaborative effort. Please feel free to give us any feedback on the usability of the features of this site as well as alert us to additional resources you feel we should add to the site.
