SMART Kids Make SMART Moves: Adapted for Indian Country
This manual is adapted from Boys & Girls Clubs of America's SMART Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) prevention/education program. SMART Moves addresses problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.
SMART Kids was published in March 2003 through a partnership of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Center of Substance Abuse Prevention, and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Native American Programs. An advisory group comprised of experts who understand SMART Moves and the target population reviewed the program and identified adaptations to make the curriculum more reflective of Native American culture. Due to the flexible nature of SMART Moves, local Native Clubs also have the ability to create their own activities and supplemental materials that best reflect their local culture and traditions.
