A.C.O.R.N. Youth Wellness Program
Two Feathers' A.C.O.R.N. Youth Wellness Program started as a multi-year California Department of Public Health, Reducing Disparities Project. It has since grown and has become a signature program for Two Feathers. Through this program, Native American youth 9 to 18 years old learn about cultural values and how they apply physically, mentally, spiritually, and culturally throughout our every day lives. Youth also participate in cultural activities throughout the year.
