Culture is Prevention

The Mvskoke Nation Youth Services focuses on culture as a method of prevention.  When young people are connected to their culture, they are more resilient and better able to deal with the challenges they face.  By providing opportunities for youth to connect with their culture, their protective factors increase.  Contact MNYS for more information and costs.  

Connect the Disconnect was created through a grant from the First Nations Development Institute. This events promotes the concept of Culture is Prevention by connecting youth to traditional activities to promote protective factors. Youth will participate in Mvskoke Language Jeopardy, beading, basket making, blow darts, and stickball while identifying their personal strengths and connecting to resources.
