Healthy Teen Relationships

Healthy Teen Relationships

Supporting Alaska Native Youth

Respect for both oneself and others is a key characteristic of healthy youth relationships. In contrast, in unhealthy relationships, one partner tries to  exert control and power over the other physically, sexually, and/or emotionally.

Healthy Relationships Plus Program

Workshop – December 16 & 17, 2020

This training focused on a brief overview of utilizing the Healthy Relationships Plus Program (HRPP) curriculum to provide education to youth and young adults on the prevention of violence through the promotion of positive, healthy relationships. HRPP is aimed for facilitation of small groups (6-25 youth) and has been enhanced to include a strengthened focus on mental health and suicide prevention, and drug and alcohol use. The training covered background on the curriculum, topical overview,  various facilitation strategies to engage youth in the curriculum lessons and open discussion for questions on facilitation, cultural adaptions and more.

I Know Mine:  LGBTQ

What Is LGBTQ?

LGBTQ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning and is part of a big thing called sexuality and gender. You may have heard these terms before or know someone who may identify as LGBTQ.  Two same-gender people loving one another romantically or someone who is a different gender than what they were given at birth are not new concepts.  Many Alaska Native and other Native cultures have stories or traditional roles or words in their Native language that describe people who were LGBTQ and Native.  (Source:  I Know Mine)
