Support Native Teens

Our Power Box has a different theme each month. The box is packed full of educational and cultural activities. Each month also includes different swag items, infographics and resource/information material related to the theme.

Create Family Time

Educational and Cultural activities are developed with the purpose of creating family time. The kits also encourage the family to sit down together for dinner and cultivate communication. The kits even offer parents conversation topics to engage their teen with open-ended questions.
