Our Mission

Our vision is to

  • build lasting relationships between tribal youth and caring adult mentors by connecting them through group cultural activities and one-on-one mentoring

  • enhance the cultural identities of tribal youth by integrating cultural values and practices into all group mentoring activities

  • decrease youth involvement with law enforcement and the courts by guiding them toward healthy lifestyle choices

The 7th Generation National Tribal Mentoring Program uses culturally specific mentoring strategies for court-involved and at-risk American Indian and Alaska Native youth ages 10-17 to guide them toward healthy lifestyle choices.

The 7th Generation Tribal Mentoring Program was an OJJDP-funded grant that lasted from 2009-2015.
