    The Native Pride program is a collaboration between the NAEP and the Tucson Indian Center that provides students with hands-on lessons and activities focused on native nutrition and physical activity. The afterschool program is for Native youth at least age 8 years old or in grades 5-8. If transportation is needed, please contact our office for more information.

    **Due to budget restrictions, travel is available to only students attending the following schools:  Amphi Middle School, Cross Middle School, La Cima Middle School, Donaldson Elementary, Holaway Elementary, Keeling Elementary, Nash Elementary, Prince Elementary, and Walker Elementary. We are looking to expand the afterschool program to our NW schools in the future - we will keep the parents updated. We apologize for this inconvenience to interested Native students in our NW schools.

    If your child attends one of the schools listed and is interested in attending, please contact our office at 520-696-4088.
