    “DREAMCATCHERS” Project
    Dream 

     

    In 2010, FUSD Indian Education Support Program teamed up with NAU’s College of Health and Human Services to provide an opportunity for our Native American Indian middle school students to participate in a program called FUSD Dream Catchers Project. The project is designed to encourage Native American middle school students to explore and consider careers in the health professions or Human Services, and to begin early academic preparation for these careers.

    Students travel to NAU South Campus for a full day of hands-on “mini-labs” led by NAU students and faculty members from the following disciplines: Athletic Training program, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Physical Therapy and Speech Language Pathology. Students participate in highly engaging activities designed to help them see how the core academic skills (reading, math, language arts) and some important life skills (responsibility, time management, goal setting and positive relationships with others) are incorporated in each area.
