The Akwesasne Clubhouse is an initiative program in which the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) awarded the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Alcoholism/Chemical Dependency Program (A/CDP) funds to open a clubhouse for the youth ages 15 to 20 of the Akwesasne community.
Akwesasne Clubhouse Goals
To have the youth in our community gain attributes such as:
- Skill building
- Peer engagement to foster friendships
- Self-esteem and self-worth
- To develop a sense of responsibility to self and community
- To encourage positive family, peer, and community involvement
- To maintain a drug/alcohol-free lifestyle and strengthen recovery
The Akwesasne Clubhouse is for youth ages 15 to 20 to have a space that is a safe and welcoming environment for young adults to develop prosocial skills that promote long-term health, wellness, recovery, and a drug- and alcohol-free lifestyle.
A professional pool table, ping pong table, dartboard, computers, 65” Mondopad Touchboard, board games, craft supplies for cultural/traditional beadwork, outdoor lawn games, a gazebo and lawn furniture.
