The objectives of the program are to:
- Increase communication skills among parents/guardians/youth providers to relay important messages to youth on issues that affect them.
- Increase access to STI screening, testing, and counseling for American Indian youth, ages 12 to 18 years old.
- Provide strategies to reduce risky behaviors and increase healthy lifestyle decisions among American Indian youth, ages 12 to 18 years old.
