OJJDP Presents at Center for Native American Youth's Resource Roundtable

May 9, 2011

On May 6, 2011, in Washington, DC, the Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute hosted a resource roundtable for federal agencies, as part of its work to create a comprehensive resource guide on programs, activities, grants, and scholarships for Native American youth. This first roundtable was comprised of presenters from the Departments of Agriculture, Education, Health and Human Services, Interior, and Justice, including the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).

Presentations were followed by a discussion period with representatives from the presenting agencies, Center for Native American Youth board members, and national Indian organizations. OJJDP highlighted its Tribal Youth Program, and provided information on its grants, publications, and other resources for working with tribal youth.
