The Asa'carsarmiut Tribe of Mountain Village, Alaska a community of 813 residents, primarily (91%) of Yup'ik Eskimo descendants, welcomes the opportunity to assist families and youth by: increasing the capacity of community leaders, increasing our resources, working with partner agencies, approval of a community plan and finally by development of policies & procedures in order to more effectively promote and sponsor culturally-appropriate and healthy activities. We are a federally recognized tribe as identified in ISDEA Act (USC 25, Chapter 14, Subchapter II, Section 450b). We are eligible to submit this grant application to HHS/SAMHSA, Native Connections program because of our tribal recognition and rate of suicide. We estimate that we will work with 250+ youth (between ages 10-24) each year and for five years thereafter, if given the opportunity. This project will broaden our ability to partner with many different agencies enabling us to help our youth even further. One requirement, to work with SAMHSA, will be strongly pursued and viable for the success of the project. With this project, we will hire a project coordinator, evaluating specialist/assistant and hopefully a Boys & Girls Club Coordinator. We truly believe in sustainability and if the outcome is not as beneficial as we hoped it would be, at least we will have a B&G Coordinator that will be trained to help our youth in the areas of suicide prevention. We also hope to accomplish the hiring of a consultant to help us in the process of completing a strategic plan, policy & protocol development. Eventually we will submit the plan for approval to our council, community residents and SAMHSA. We will ensure federal regulations/guidelines relevant to this project are in compliance.
