Native America Calling, the National Indian Child Welfare Association and the Tribal Youth Survey Project.
The national Tribal Youth Survey Project is a participatory research project to increase our knowledge of child victimization, juvenile delinquency, suicide and mental health, and protective and risk factors among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth. Prevent Child Abuse America is the fiscal agent for the project which is funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Project and our partners are the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) and Purdue University Calumet. Terry Cross, who is the Executive Director and Founder of NICWA, and a former Prevent Child Abuse America Board Member, along with Youth Ambassador Tricia Carter, was recently interviewed about the project on the radio show Native America Calling. If you would like to listen to the interview and learn more about the project please go to the following link and scroll down to the episode titled Kids Witnessing Violence which was originally aired on May 25, 2010.
