NALU Studies Maui Program for High-Risk Youth

by Pacific American Foundation is the fiscal sponsor NALU Studies Education Center

The NALU Studies Education Center is requesting 25K in funding to support the development of the NALU Studies Maui program, which will result in redirecting Maui's high risk, adjudicated, high school youth to see themselves as responsible environmental leaders and education as a valuable resource. NALU Maui youth will come to understand advanced scientific concepts and cultural protocols by working directly with scientist mentors and cultural practitioners in hands-on, experiential education approaches that address real world environmental issues.  We have been approached by the Honorable Judge Mark Browning of the Hawaii Family Court and Circuit Court. NALU Maui students will receive both high school and college credit so that they can graduate and not drop out and they will be trained to mentor peers and at-risk middle school youth to help them make healthy responsible decisions.  NALU Studies synergizes science, community service, and education, engaging at-risk, under-represented youth through a Hawaiian cultural contextual lens. Through NALU Studies' two components, consisting of the NALU Nature program that connects youth with engaging outdoor activities, and the rigorous NALU Academic program, that consists of labs, field work, a final exam, and a public presentation, we will be able to transform the lives of Maui high-risk youth to see themselves as responsible leaders taking action in support of their communities and the environment.

UNSTOPPABLE Music Empowerment Program

by FREE2LUV INC

The effects of low self-esteem in children — depression, hostility/acting out, and poor social skills — are devastating. Underserved youth are particularly vulnerable. In response to this issue, Free2Luv® has created UNSTOPPABLE, an interactive, music-based empowerment program serving at-risk youth, designed to engage, enlighten, and empower youth to celebrate their own individuality and uniqueness.

Through popular music and powerful storytelling, we address topics pertinent to today’s youth — self-acceptance, anxiety, depression, overcoming adversity, bullying, the importance of kindness, racism, self-esteem, and goal development — all from a peer perspective. 

Teen performers stress to the students that they are not alone, that being different and unique is a strength, and that they too can overcome adversity. Our goal is to ignite a spark in every participant to inspire positive choices, and increased feelings of support and belonging.

Free2BeME Project: Journeys of Self-Discovery

by FREE2LUV INC

In response to the bullying and youth suicide crisis that affects such a large number of youth each day, Free2Luv created the Free2BeME Project, an art-driven empowerment workshop geared toward meeting the needs of at-risk youth.

The Free2BeME Project creates a safe space for youth to express themselves creatively, develop self-esteem, foster teamwork, communication, and leadership skills - all while becoming more responsible and active stewards of their community.

Self-esteem in youth is at an all-time low, over 160,000 students are staying home from school every day due to bullying, and funds for the arts has been cut over 80% in U.S. public schools. We need to actively address these issues by offering our empowerment programming free-of-charge to underserved communities, affording them the opportunity to creatively express themselves through the power of the arts.

NICWA/36th Annual Protecting our Children National American Indian Conf. on Child Abuse & Neglect

by NATIONAL INDIAN CHILD WELFARE ASSOCIATION INC

Every year our conference offers attendees cutting-edge programming and serves as the leading source of emerging best practices in the field of Native child welfare. Strategies to develop institutions and programs that keep Native families together and thriving are at the core of our programming, and ensuring compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is one of these cornerstone strategies. ICWA was passed by Congress in 1978 to prevent the alarmingly high rates at which Native children were removed from their homes and placed with non-Native families. Despite progress across the country, problems persist with the disproportionate removal of Native children from their families. In the state of Alaska, Native children are 2.6 times more likely than non-Native children to be placed in out-of-home care, and they are also at higher risk of never being reunited with their families.

For the 573 federally recognized tribes we serve, ICWA allows them to exercise a fundamental prerogative of sovereignty—the right to care for the next generation of Native leaders and keep them connected to their families and culture. The continuation of tribal traditions in large part depends on Native children staying with their families or near their communities.

Our conference addresses this need through our unique mix of programming that inspires attendees to develop culturally responsive institutions to affect change in their communities and develop strategic approaches to promoting the well-being of children. With internationally renowned advocates like Gloria O’Neill (from Cook Inlet Tribal Council), Ariel Tweto (Iñupiaq and TV personality), Dr. Dee Bigfoot, and Cindy Blackstock—our conference attendees are inspired to continue building institutions that reflect their community’s needs and to fight for tribes’ right to care for their member children.

Conference goals:

  • To highlight successful strategies for developing effective services
  • To reveal the latest and most innovative child welfare and children’s mental health service delivery practices
  • To disseminate tactics and strategies for financing and sustaining services that impact children
  • To showcase strategies for involving youth and families in developing services and policies that lead to systems change
  • To create peer-to-peer networks that will assist each other in the work toward permanency for all Native families
  • To share the latest research on the well-being of Native children and effective child welfare and children’s mental health services, practices, and policies
