Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa Youth Program
The Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc. (IHCRC), an urban Indian clinic, offers a variety of youth programs to improve the health & enrich the culture of Indian children in the community. The Strengthening Our Native Youth (SONY) program serves school-age, intertribal children and youth in school and community-based settings. The American Indian Life Skills curriculum is also offered to elementary and middle school youth to reduce the risk of suicide. After school and summer activities incorporate physical activity, experimental learning and cultural enrichment in partnership with local schools, Indian Education programs and community partner agencies.
The IHCRC offers multiple resources for Native youth, including Native Cultural Summer Camps to explore local tribal cultures; the Fit Kids Healthy Futures camps to focus on physical activity, nutrition, and diabetes prevention; and an after school program to help with homework, physical activities, and gardening. Over the past three years, IHCRC has installed over 400 raised garden beds in 40 school and community sites around Tulsa.
