Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $299,911)

The Taos Pueblo has a Tribal population of 1,864 of which 540 are youth under 18 years of age. Several indicators show the need for the community of Taos Pueblo to provide an effective response to prevent juvenile delinquent behavior. Therefore, the Taos Pueblo Tribal Youth Program plans to implement a four-year delinquency prevention and intervention program through both school and community based, year-round activities focusing on truancy prevention, promotion of existing after school activities and strategies to improve the local juvenile justice system. The categories under which Taos Pueblo Tribal Youth Program is seeking to address are: 1) to provide prevention services to impact risk factors for delinquency, and 2) to improve tribal juvenile justice systems. The setting for the program includes the Taos Pueblo reservation and Taos County in Municipal and Bureau of Indian Affairs school settings. The ages of juveniles to be served by the program are 10 to 17 years of age. Taos Pueblo will conduct both a process and outcome evaluation by hiring a local Evaluator to collect and maintain the key data to support the process and outcome evaluations required by OJJDP.
