Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $400,000)

The Hannahville Indian Community will implement Project Quest, a Prevention Program focusing on preventing teenaged pregnancies and teenage alcohol and drug use. The program is planned to take place during after school hours, on weekends and during the summer months when the traditional school is out of session. Key components of the program are the evidence/ research based prevention curriculums; the Native American Prevention Project Against AIDS and Substance Abuse (NAPPASA), There's No Place Like Home for Sex Education, Schools Where Everyone Belongs and Empowering Bystanders. All are based on the Native American culture. The curriculae will be delivered in conjunction with a variety of structured activities during times identified as high-risk for acts of juvenile delinquency. The activities have been chosen by youth, which increases the likelihood of substantial participation and impact. The program will be tracked and data will be reported by the number of program youth and/or families served; percentage of program youth who offend or re-offend (arrested/rearrested), including violation of a condition of probation, diversion, restitution or other adjudication; percent of program youth and/or families exhibiting desired change in targeted behaviors (i.e., substance use, antisocial behavior, truancy, gang involvement, etc.; and the percent of program staff trained.
