San Pasqual's afterschool prevention program and substance abuse prevention program will include leadership training, mentoring, healthy lifestyle activities, substance abuse prevention, and career and college exploration. Cultural values will be infused through all aspects of the program. The tribe will report on mandatory OJJDP Tribal Youth Program performance measures. CA/NCF
