 VISION

Students for Success has been serving Nez Perce youth since 1995.  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.

 Coalitions:

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.
