Ikidowin Peer Education Programimageedit_2_7398211281

The Ikidowin Peer Educators and Acting Ensemble is a group of Native Teens 12-18 years old.

The program meets in the school year and during the summer. We follow a curriculum about sexual health including STD, HIV/AIDS, and teen pregnancy prevention designed for Native teens that includes cultural education. Our youth have developed a play called “Wait” that includes poetry and short vignettes to tell the story about how teen pregnancy affect Native teens and the Native community. We travel to different youth programs and reservations to perform our play. The program includes stipends for working to become a peer educator and performing the play “Wait”. Youth who are interested should apply in September or May, you do not need to have prior acting experience.
