Over 50 Native American Youth attempt suicide each and every day! More than 2 Indian Youth are successful. That's over 800 young Indian lives lost yearly! Help us help them. www.FlyingWithEagles.org

About

Our organization, The Coalition for the Prevention of Native American Youth Suicide trains young folks in peer leadership so they may work within their communities, "counseling" their colleagues on the various alternatives and ways they can redirect their thoughts and overcome their challenges.

We have scholarship opportunities available for up to 24 youth so they may attend one of our training sessions and we need help in contacting the various educational and social services leadership personnel for Indian Tribes. We are working on a limited amount of time and simply making calls to these tribal leaders and telling them about the scholarships will help tremendously.

The project will help save young Indian lives and make a difference in their communities - IF we can get the word out to them.
