The Tribal Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center recognizes that every tribe’s needs are unique. Our staff live and work in Indian Country, so they are intimately familiar with American Indian and Alaskan Native communities, customs, and culture. We believe that by working one-on-one, through the life of the grant, tribes are better able to succeed in their goals. Our goal is to increase AI/AN communities’ skills and knowledge about programs and strategies, building tribes’ capacity to develop effective and sustainable programs for reducing juvenile crime and increasing youth potential in tribal communities. As a project at Education Development Center, we are able to collaborate with other Centers here at EDC, Inc.
Other centers that provide services or resources that may be of interest to AI/AN Communities include
- The Suicide Prevention Resource Center
- The Tribal Juvenile Detention and Reentry Resource Center
