KOSSS Land Based and Intervention Program helps students refocus their priorities with school and life. It is a place where teachers and elders come in and work with students to help them learn about their identity, history and culture. They also learn about the land through hunting and fishing with lessons and stories that pertain to living in harmony with Creation. Scheduled programming educates students about healthy boundaries, rules, safety, exercises that are based on affirmations, journaling, trust building, life teachings and the creation story. Students do a plan of self-care and look at all the supports that can be accessed and utilized. KOSSS offers a place of safety and security for students to working through issues and provides life skill tools to start and continue personal healing.
