The Grand Traverse Band is meeting the extensive and unique needs of delinquent Native American male and female youth by providing culturally appropriate community based residential programming.
The GTB community-based programs are licensed by the State of Michigan and provide families the opportunity to participate in locally based programming using an evidenced based model, which requires intensive family participation. Often distance, lack of transportation, or even lack of a telephone, has been critical issues preventing family participation in residential programs outside the service area.
It is our belief that without family involvement the success the youth experiences within the confines of any program will be short lived.
