Students for Success has been serving Nez Perce youth since
We hope to foster personal resiliency and capability for our youth to succeed in
education, career, community service, and wellness. We understand that our
work is very important and we want to meet the challenge of developing our most
precious natural resource, our young people. Infusion of cultural
practices and knowledge is a main strategy we use to target prevention of
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD) use, and HIV.

We coordinate the Community CARE Team (CCT) in Kamiah and Lapwai. The
mission of the CCT is to meet the need of cooperation and support between
organizations to address youth and community substance abuse problems and
related safety, health, education, and social issues.
Through the state tobacco grant we work with the Nez Perce Tribe Tobacco
Prevention Coalition to plan prevention activities for the community focused
on youth and adult cessation and non-use of tobacco and exposure to second
and third-hand smoke.
