Youth Prevention Education Program
To see our children mature into substance free, responsible leaders; with faith in our Creator; strong morals and values; a positive sense of self and great conviction for the well being of family, community and Mother Earth.
The Youth Prevention Education Program will provide youth ages 5 - 17 with fun, educational science based programs through alternative and cultural activities. With love, integrity and faith we will implement these programs with a safe structured environment.
The youth program will work and collaborate within our Tribe and with other tribal and non-tribal agencies to achieve a comprehensive advancement to prevention. A holistic approach will be made to help the youth identify with their traditional ways, to be responsible for living a healthy life style and to be proud of being a Native American.
The youth program focuses on bringing the Micmac youth together and exposing them to many different experiences. These experiences help bring out their strength, function as a team and make group decisions.
