For Adults

We R Native has created a sister site for adults — Healthy Native Youth — a one-stop-shop for educators and adolescent health advocates who want to expand learning opportunities for native youth. The site is designed for tribal health educators, teachers, parents and caring adults – providing the training and tools needed to access and deliver effective, age-appropriate programs.
