My initial goals for the project are to identify the key issues that prevent peaceful resolution to human conflict.

Our project will remove debris from roadways, waterways, nature trails, schools, and train stations. We will accomplish this by clearing debris away after a heavy rain or flood, raking autumn leaves, removing graffiti from public buildings, bridges, or fences, and landscaping a public areas.

This project will promote equality on all levels through socioeconomic integration. Citizens of varying incomes will form social networks that enhance socioeconomic mobility and spur economic growth

There are critical steps to an effective health outreach program and our project will educate the community and build positive relationships by exploring cultural community newspapers, establishing community events, and collaborating with volunteers in the target community.

Ministering to youth comes with a lot of challenges and puppets can help to overcome many of them. Children enjoy having fun during puppet presentations while learning at the same time. When you create a fun and educational environment, children will respond positively.

A mini grant will provide us with the opportunity to facilitate a camp that is geared towards the current issues our youth are facing. With teen suicide rates increasing, we feel this will be a good opportunity to provide a positive outlet to address their concerns

The Gladstone Indian Education students will participate by visiting our own Lake Michigan as well as the nearby rivers and Bay. They will sit for a half hour and journal every animal and insect that comes to the water to drink. They also will have to look up the message that each of these animals bring to them. Since in the Native Tradition, it is said that each animal is a messenger and carry a message for those who come across it's path. Then, the students have to share their findings with their classroom, parents, and teachers. For their parents, this is a very important piece of information, since many of those parents, grandparents and great grandparents lost the traditions during the boarding school era. This is a message that needs to be delivered through our messengers, for the messengers. Water is Life. Take care of our precious resource. Chi-Miigwetch (Big-Thank You)

We will take middle school kids out on a trail and teach them about Leave No Trace learning, while picking up trash and learning to recognize where people have harmed the environment and how to fix it. We will learn about the Native Communities and how they lived with and on the land we now live on, and how they survived, and why they are no longer as prominent as they used to be.

We are talking with professionals at the University of MI to see what are the possible ways that we can take initiative.
