Program 1

Futures for Children offers an unparalleled opportunity to make a significant contribution to the education and well being of a Native American child. Futures' program centers around a unique self-help approach consisting of three Circles of Support: Friendship, Youth Leadership and Parent and Family Training. The first circle, Friendship, matches Native children with caring mentors outside the reservation. Through letters, phone calls and visits, mentors encourage their students to complete high school and pursue post-secondary educational opportunities. These cross cultural relationships often last a lifetime. Through a specially designed curriculum, the second circle, Youth Leadership, inspires Native American students in grades 4-12 to be young leaders, role models and active community members. The third circle, Parent and Family Training, works collaboratively with community leaders, volunteers, parents and family members to increase the involvement of parents in their children's academic pursuits. Futures currently works with 150 volunteers who help deliver the program in 88 schools and communities in Arizona and New Mexico.
