The 7th Generation National Tribal Mentoring Program uses culturally specific mentoring strategies for court-involved and at-risk American Indian and Alaska Native youth ages 10-17 to guide them toward healthy lifestyle choices.
Our vision is to
build lasting relationships between tribal youth and caring adult mentors by connecting them through group cultural activities and one-on-one mentoring
enhance the cultural identities of tribal youth by integrating cultural values and practices into all group mentoring activities
decrease youth involvement with law enforcement and the courts by guiding them toward healthy lifestyle choices
