Native Students Together Against Negative Decisions (STAND) is a culturally-relevant, inter-tribal curriculum for high school-aged (14-18 years old) teens that draws on cultural teachings and values from across Indian Country. The curriculum holistically addresses healthy decision-making and develops knowledge and skills for healthy relationships and self-esteem, preventing STDs and early pregnancy, and avoiding substance abuse.
The Oregon Health & Science University Center for Healthy Communities is partnering with the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board to recruit Tribes and AI/AN organizations from around the country to receive training on the delivery of Native STAND and to participate in the Native STAND Dissemination, Implementation, and Evaluation Project. Successful applicants will receive one week of training in Portland, Oregon with expenses paid for travel, lodging and meals. For more information, visit https://nnlm.gov/bhic/626d
