The award recipient will build on the successes of the past OJJDP National Intertribal Youth Leadership Summits and the Today’s Native Leaders program to further expand the types of leadership development support that OJJDP offers to tribal youth.
This initiative aims to enhance tribal efforts
to increase youth engagement, coordination, and action related to juvenile justice, delinquency prevention, and public safety in Indian country.
The recipient will employ multiple strategies, including the development of a group of youth leaders who will have an integral role in planning and convening national and regional learning events and virtual learning opportunities to strengthen the ability of tribal youth to initiate, contribute to, and participate in culturally relevant efforts that reduce risk factors and enhance protective factors to prevent juvenile delinquency.
