Indian Center Inc.’s Native Connections for Life is a year-long, open-enrollment youth program serving ages 8-24 with three culture-focused curriculum developed by Native Americans to aid personal development, communication skills, prevent risky behaviors, and support Native youth and communities. Native Connections for Life takes both an evidence-based and holistic approach towards enriching the lives and minds of Native children and young adults.

During the school year, the Native Connections for Life will provide a light meal, while offering homework night, writing workshops, mentors/tutors, ongoing grade assessments, age-appropriate group facilitations, culturally-based teachings, physical activities, and field trips.

Here at the Indian Center Inc., the health and wellbeing of Native American youth is our priority. We understand that the success and futurity of Indian Country depends on developing healthy hearts, minds, bodies, outlooks, and attitudes of future generations.

We are committed to helping our Native youth develop the skills necessary to live not only a successful life, but a healthy, empowering one as well; applying culture and ceremony as prevention, we can strengthen Native identity, which is vital to Native youth’s wellbeing and sense of purpose. This guides their personal development and works to heal the intergenerational trauma that pervades all our lives as Native people. By encouraging a positive sense of self through cultural enrichment, we can change a perspective. By changing a perspective, we can change a life. Our number one goal is to support our youth in making healthy, empowering decisions that last a lifetime.

Lincoln Public Schools is entering a three-year pilot program and partnership with the Indian Center Inc. - to provide academic support and incentive for native American students to graduate from high school.

Lincoln Public School is focusing on students in the demographic group who struggle the most with graduation, locally and nationally.

This program aligns with several basic LPS goals:

  • Increase the high school graduation rate.
  • Partner with community groups to provide academic support for our students.

Along with its other programming, the Indian Center Inc., will offer the following research-based academic opportunities for LPS Native American students:

  • Reinforce homework.
  • Goal setting.
  • Rewarding academic success.

This program provides an academic incentive - related to additional recognition on graduation attire - much like LPS currently offers other students through programs such as Thespians and the National Honors Society.

LPS will monitor this program over three years and recview.
