The partner organizations: NativeVision is an innovative program created by Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health, that uses sports as a hook to encourage youth to stay in school, lead healthy lifestyles, avoid alcohol and drugs, and achieve their dreams. It is propelled by professional and college athletes who serve as mentors/coaches at the annual intensive NativeVision camps. Since it was launched in 1996, NativeVision has become one of the largest youth development initiatives serving American Indians in the country, reaching over 40,000 Native youth and families. www.NativeVision.org
