TM Tribal Youth:  The Turtle Mountain Tribal Youth Program was developed in April of 2012 by the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.  The Program is dedicated to helping our youth to develop and prosper into self-reliant adults. Its focus is youth empowerment, through a holistic approach, by incorporating education, culture, health, fitness and through positive activities.


It is our goal to instill positive behaviors in our young people and life skills to help them succeed in life.  The Tribal Youth Program's mission is to help them realize the available opportunities to reach their life goals and enrich their lives with positive energy.


We engage our youth in the seven grandfather teachings where they learn respect, love, wisdom, bravery, honesty, humility and truth.  With these teachings, they learn how to conduct themselves towards others and live harmoniously, healthy lives.
