FLYING WITH EAGLES INC's Fundraiser:

Developing Native American youth as peer leaders to combat suicide & substance abuse where they live

FLYING WITH EAGLES INC's Photo

THE STORY:

According to a study of 14,000 Native American youth by the University of Minnesota, suicide, substance abuse, physical and sexual abuse are profound problems. Suicide rates among Native American youth continue to be significantly higher than the national average.

Teen suicide among Native American youth is three times the national average and is the second leading cause of death. Among Native American males, aged 15 to 19 the rate is 34.6 per 100,000 which is 2.5 times the national rate for all youth. Alcoholism for the same group is more than 600 times the national average.

Created by youth, for youth, the program leads the participants on a journey of awareness, discovery, preparation and challenge. Flying With Eagles enables Native American Youth to counsel other Native American youth, showing those “at risk” alternative life choices and as a result the peer leadership model is successful in raising their self-esteem which lies at the root of the problem.

Flying With Eagles is a Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation, recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization with exemption status that was effective March 30, 2007.
