What is Living in 2 Worlds (L2W)?
Calling all American Indian Middle School Students! Are you interested in learning about how your American Indian culture and values can help you say “no” in everyday conflicts? Join us for fun discussions about how to deal with risky situations at school and home and time to spend with other youth like you! Other workshop opportunities include door prizes, gift cards, and free food!
This curriculum was developed by the Phoenix Indian Center in partnership with ASU’s Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center using the Keepin’ it REAL drug resistance strategies project as a program for our American Indian youth. Living in 2 Worlds draws on American Indian culture and values as effective drug resistance strategies. We provide youth with different ways to say no to negative choices that confront youth every day, and at the same time, we give youth ample opportunity to express their pride in their American Indian culture(s) and teach them the positive value in the nurturing of that pride.
Living in 2 Worlds, draws on Native culture and values as effective drug resistance strategies. The L2W also teaches, a variety of ways to say no to negative choices that confront youth every day, while learning about different cultures. The students take home Cultural Heritage projects to open communication with family and discuss lives in urban and reservation homes.
Check back often for dates of upcoming sessions.
