Youth Services

Youth Services exists to serve the families of the Menominee Community through the prevention of family crisis as well as support families who are experiencing crisis through the use and delivery of culturally appropriate resources which meet the unique needs of families.

As dreamers of the Menominee Community we share a vision of culture with our elders, that preserves and builds strong families and community relationships with all our relatives. Our goals are family reunification and support for our youth by strengthening families. We use their strengths and weaknesses to make them a strong healthy family unit. We help families/youth set goals, create a plan to implement those goals, and accomplish their goals. Develop a partnership with families/youth and Community Resources that best suit their needs. The target population is youth ages 11-17 who want to get involved with the community in a positive manner and first time offenders of under age drinking, citations, curfew violations, parent/child conflicts and truancy family conflicts.
