Pathways Youth Program, SY2021-2022, is seeking participants. The program began on Oct. 18. Pathways is a youth substance use prevention program for Native American youth in grades 3rd-6th and their families.

We provide provide programming  that focuses on maintaining healthy lifestyles, education and we provide homework assistance in an after-school setting.

We are partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Flagstaff to run our programming.

Pathways use modern substance use methods as well as traditional Indigenous teachings and philosophies to teach substance use prevention. Some of the activities that we are going to offer are Indigenous arts and crafts (beading, Navajo rug weaving, and Native American painting), teaching about Indigenous foods, and daily cultural sharing/teachings. 

For more information, enrollment, contact Pathways Program Coordinator Ezekiel Ogden at 928-225-4454, or send an email to eogden@nacainc.org
