Navigators

The Navigators program helps youth in navigating through adolescence into adulthood. It is a relationship-based prevention and early-intervention program with a holistic and trauma informed approach that serves Native youth ages 13-24. Youth enrolled in the Navigators program are provided group and individual opportunities that intentionally help youth to navigate through adolescence into adulthood.

Participants answer four essential questions:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Where am I?
  3. Where do I want to go?
  4. How do I get there?

Navigators focuses on cultural connectedness, learning and practicing critical life skills, and providing academic support and leadership opportunities in a safe and engaging environment. To make this possible, staff coordinate with partners with Tlingit & Haida’s departments and programs, the school district, and other agencies to connect students and their families with other resources.
