The Nebraska Urban Indian Health Coalition and the SOMS program, in collaboration with area health professionals and youth-serving organizations, has developed and is the process of implementing a Native American Sex and Relationship Education Program (NASREP). NASREP is focused on leadership, empowerment, solidarity-building, and healthy relationships/sexual behavior. NASREP’s objective is to involve Native American adolescents in addressing the immediate need to provide effective STD/STI and pregnancy prevention education. NASREP operates using a culturally appropriate foundation regarding sex and relationship forums, STD testing/counseling, and condom distribution. NASREP consists of an 8-week program targeted towards, but not limited to, Native American male and females ages 13-24 who permanently or temporarily reside in Douglas County, NE. Males and females will be split up into two separate groups with a customized and individualized curriculum. NUIHC’s overall goal is to work collaboratively within the community to educate Native American adolescents, their partners and families on safe sex practices.
